Prada + Roaring Twenties = The Great Gatsby

PradaSohoStoreGatsbyEven before the movie is out (scheduled to hit theatres May 10) you can already admire all the costumes Prada created for The Great Gatsby. The full looks are on display in the Prada store in SoHo New York till May 12.

Miuccia Prada adapted 40 dresses from the Prada and Miu Miu archives for the movie. The designer admits that what intrigued her the most when working on the project was the way in which many of her designs could be so easily translated into Twenties pieces – despite not necessarily being originally created with that era in mind.


It seems like the whole world is in great anticipation for this movie. Let’s hope it will meet the expectations. But if you ask me, the academy award for best costume design can already go to Miuccia Prada!
