Every so often a film comes along that gets everyone in a tizzy – from fashion and interiors geeks right through to entertainment buffs and those in the drinks industry. Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming remake of The Great Gatsby is one such movie. If you’re not drinking Juleps and Gin Rickeys in a glorious Art Deco bar after its release next month, we’ll eat our boater hats…
Dressing the part certainly helps. We were inspired by the fabulous looks from the period for our latest cover and style shoot. See Lee Hyde and his team at the lavish Bar Américain at Brasserie Zédel get the Gatsby habit in the latest print issue of The Cocktail Lovers Magazine, coming to a bar near you from Friday 26th April. To make sure you don’t miss out, drop us a line and we’ll send you a copy (postage and packaging applies).
We also sought out clothes from Brooks Brothers (see above.) As the iconic American clothing company were a favourite of F. Scott Fitzgerald and created all 500 or so outfits for the males in the film (including Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire), its limited-edition Great Gatsby Collection is bang-on. Check out the clothes and the in-store exhibition featuring key pieces from the upcoming movie, premiering in Cannes on 10th May.
