Rokit Vintage Film Club: Great Gatsby Garden Party

Posted on

Leo and Carey looking quite dashing.
The perfect excuse to dress up in faux fur and kimonos.
Suits, braces, brogues... the whole shebang.

It's the Rokit Vintage Film Club at Rokit and how could we not focus on the film of the moment, The Great Gatsby! We have all been experiencing some serious wardrobe envy from the female and male characters, so have created a couple of Gatsby themed mood boards with some 1920s Garden Party looks.

The amazing women's costumes are a collaboration between award winning wardrobe designer Catherine Martine (the wife of Baz Luhrmann!) and fashion designer Miuccia Prada. They took inspiration from original 1920s designs and previous Prada collections, with a focus on embellishment and bold designs, from intricate beading, floral patterns and lashings of pearls!

Stand out in a bold summer flower prints or keep it simple with subtle spring floral lace in pink and peach tones and channel 1920s chic.

The American heritage label Brooks Brothers provided the dapper menswear for the film and actually dressed Fitzgerald back in the 1920s! It's about the details for this look, think bow ties, braces and standout glasses to name just a few.

Get inspired by the silver screen, get ready to dance the night away in glitzy 1920s style and remember:

'Everybody who is anybody is seen at his glittering parties'
