Brooks Brothers a favorite of author F. Scott Fitzgerald has teamed with Oscar winning costume designer Catherine Martin to create the men’s wardrobe for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming adaption of Fitzgerald’s classic, “The Great Gatsby.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald was a life-long Brooks Brothers customer, making America’s oldest clothier a perfect partner for the film. “It was this most basic and fundamental connection that has made our collaboration so authentic,” said Martin.
A majority of the 500 men’s costumes featured in the film were inspired by images and products from the company’s archives. The resulting costumes added a period-specific authenticity to the film and helped bring Fitzgerald’s masterpiece to life in 3D.
In celebration of the films release, Brooks Brothers has adapted Martin’s costumes, into a special ultra-sharp modern menswear collection currently available in-store and online at. www.brooksbrothers.com
Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maquire is scheduled for a May 10th release. www.thegreatgatsby.warnerbros.com
