Fashion and film: Miuccia Prada for The Great Gatsby

 Miuccia Prada for The Great Gatsby all-myLusciousLife.com

Designers Miuccia Prada and Catherine Martin collaborated on the costumes for Baz Luhrmann’s lavish new film The Great Gatsby. The pair created over 40 designs for the film, all inspired by looks from the Prada and Miu Miu archives….

 

 

Baz Luhrmann and Miuccia Prada share a passion for bringing classic designs into the present, Martin told Vogue UK.

“In the same way Nick Carraway reflects on a world that he is within and without, we have tried to create an environment that the audience will be subconsciously familiar with, yet separated from.” Martin said.

Miuccia Prada for The Great Gatsby

“I usually try not to literally reference periods in my work, because that’s not the way I think,” Prada told Vogue. “But when I worked on the costumes, I realised how many pieces would become very Twenties with a little intervention and another point of view.”

View Prada’s released sketches below.
