Seeking 2 quiet hours, design inspiration, and a glimpse into developing trends, I went to see 2013’s The Great Gatsby.
Critics warned, you will not find the novel or a complicated story line here. And they were correct. However, if you are of visual nature (like me), you may find this to be the best 2 hours you’ve experienced in some time.
I soaked up every minute of this film like a sponge. I loved it. The dream-like sequence, dark edge, haunting music, lavish decor, and INCREDIBLY beautiful costume design.
Here is a glimpse of Gatsby’s home-
And Nick Carraway’s, appealing for different reasons-
The amazing costume design- (Collaboration with Miuccia Prada, check out the video.)
All living art in this film captures the best of 1920’s revolutionary design- with a modern twist. We will feel it’s effects. In fact, I believe we are seeing influences already…
Black & White. Gold. Crystal chandeliers. Shiny surfaces. Tailored furniture. Deep shades of blue. Kelly green. Red. Jewel tones. Flesh tones. A quest for the finer things.
Creative souls- go get your fill. Cheers readers!
