Great Gatsby Style

This week sees the release of one of the most highly anticipated films of the year. After years in development, The Great Gatsby finally graces our cinema screens from Thursday. The film centres on Jay Gatsby, an enigmatic man who seemingly has the perfect life. He enjoys all the riches in the world and a never ending stream of parties, yet is tortured by unrequited love. Through narrator Nick Carraway, a naive newcomer to the exclusive Long Island social set, we are transported into a world of 1920s decadence.

The screenplay is adapted from the classic novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and emphasises the culture of excess that was at its peak in the 1920s. With a stellar cast, a controversial soundtrack, and Baz Luhrmann – a director notorious for his exuberant energy and dramatic aesthetic (we all remember the the 60-foot gold elephant in Moulin Rouge) – at the helm, this screen adaptation promises to be an explosion of colour and extravagance. We can’t wait to see it.

Unsurprisingly, the film’s release has brought about a revival of 1920s style, and everything from art deco interiors to flapper girl fashion is back in vogue. Inject some 1920s style into your home and wardrobe with our edit of Gatsby-inspired pieces:
