The Look – The Great Gatsby Edition

So, as some of you may know I’m a big fan of movies set in the early 1920’s. The main reason for this being my love for the fashion from that era.

The Great Gatsby Movie is an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel.

At the height of the roaring twenties the story follows the life of a millionaire by the name of Jay Gatsby, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, and his neighbour Nick Carraway played by Tobey Maguire.

The Great Gatsby is set to be today this and when I was asked to take part in a shoot based on the theme, you can all imagine how super excited and over the moon I was.

I tried to capture 1920s styling but had to raise the bar Gatsby style. For me it was the finishing touches like the imperial collar, waistcoats, hats and two-tone shoes that made the look and are definitely key pieces a gentlemen would have been seen in this era.
