first look – miuccia prada designs costumes for the great gatsby

Gatsby Prada dresses

Coinciding perfectly with Haute Couture WeekPrada released these sneak preview sketches of the costumes designed by Miuccia Prada for the upcoming film The Great Gatsby, directed by Baz Luhrmann and featuring Leonardo DiCaprioCarey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire to name just a few!

Although the relationship between Prada and Baz Luhrmann may seem slightly random, it is actually not the first time the duo have worked together and costume designer Catherine Martin shed some light on their friendship,

‘Baz and Miuccia have always connected on their shared fascination with finding modern ways of releasing classic and historical references from the shackles of the past… This connection is central to our relationship with Miuccia Prada on The Great Gatsby, and has connected our vision with hers. In the same way Nick Carraway reflects on a world that he is within and without, we have tried to create an environment that the audience will be subconsciously familiar with, yet separated from,’ the designer said in an interview with The Telegraph.

We can’t wait for the release of this movie (even if it isn’t for another 6 months!!), especially now that we’ve had this little teaser of the costumes which just leaves another 36 unseen Prada costumes!
