Any time I can pair books with fashion, I get excited. How about a line based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby? H&M would have two film versions for inspiration:
The 1974 version with Robert Redford (as Jay Gatsby) and Mia Farrow (as Daisy Buchanan). A mediocre film, sure — but the clothes were fantastic!
And director Baz Luhrmann’s upcomming 2012 version, starring Leo DiCaprio as Jay and Carey Mulligan as Daisy:
I imagine lots of flowy white Eastern Seaboard flapper dresses as well as some deep emerald green silk gowns for the Gatsby line. Wouldn’t that be beautiful? Sigh.
