the roaring 20s…


Reading The Great Gatsby in one of my literature classes, for probably the umpteenth time, but it never fails to fascinate.  The pared down opulence of the twenties had me really loving the SS2012 Ralph Lauren collection.  Unsurprisingly he did the the costumes for the original film adaptation of Gatsby.  I’m sure Baz Luhrman’s upcoming adaptation, starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the titular character, Carey Mulligan as Daisy, and Tobey Maguire as the narrator Tom Carraway, will take some costume cues from Lauren.

Also, the fashion of the 20s makes for awesome Halloween costumes.  I haven’t picked a theme yet but this seems totally wearable past the night of, don’t you think?

Also reminded me of the beautiful shoot that Grace Coddington put together for Vogue a few years back that was featured in the film The September Issue…as well as this archival photo that popped up on Vogue.Com today…
