INSPIRED BY 1920'S TIFFANY DESIGNS HIGHLIGHT FILM OF FITZGERALD'S CLASSIC NOVEL
DUBAI, UAE (15 May 2013) -- Director Baz Luhrmann's film, The Great Gatsby debuts on May 16 in the United Arab Emirates, and with it The Great Gatsby Collection by Tiffany & Co., inspired by the film and created in collaboration with Oscar®-winning costume designer Catherine Martin.
“It gives us great pleasure to showcase the Tiffany Jazz Age Collections inspired by The Great Gatsby and to celebrate their brilliance with our customers in the Middle East,” said Mr. Laurent Cathala, Tiffany Vice President Emerging Markets.
The spectacular jewelry is based on designs from the Tiffany Archives and worn by the film's all-star cast, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan, who appear as Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan. “The jewelry symbolizes the story's themes of wealth and privilege, and we approached its design with the utmost style and luxury in mind,” said Jon King, executive vice president of Tiffany & Co.
Tiffany's dazzling creations illuminate the characters' rarefied world of New York penthouses and Long Island estates. Ms. Mulligan's Tiffany wardrobe includes tassel necklaces and jewels with lustrous conch pearls. At evening soirées her blond bob is circled with the Savoy, a headdress of diamonds and cultured pearls, (shown below) and her gestures are accented by a hand ornament in a daisy motif and diamond rings with the Tiffany® Setting. The daisy is also featured in earrings of Tiffany Yellow Diamonds and a long-stemmed brooch.
Elizabeth Debicki, who plays Jordan Baker, wears chandelier earrings of rose-cut diamonds, bracelets of diamonds and seed pearls and Art Deco-inspired rings of sapphires and diamonds in platinum. At posh parties her elegant ensembles are accented with fluid diamond necklaces and earrings of cushion-cut black onyx or emerald-cut aquamarines.
Mr. DiCaprio's custom Brooks Brothers shirts are finished with oval cuff links of black or green enamel on 18 karat gold. Essentials such as a slender card case and flask in sterling silver fit smoothly in the pockets of his tailored linen suits and tuxedo.
