This season sees the Twenties roar once more as the highly anticipated Baz Luhrmann adaptation of The Great Gatsby hits the silver screen.

Just released, the tale of the enigmatic Jay Gatsby and his relationship with the flighty Daisy Buchanan, penned by the legendary F. Scott Fitzgerald, beautifully captures the decadence that continues to define the decade.

Gatsby fever has well and truly set in, and with the unmistakable glamour of the Twenties, it’s the costumes that are causing a stir.

Prada collaborated with costume designer Catherine Martin to create over 40 looks for the film.

Inspired by the jazz age, we can expect to see floor sweeping dresses dripping in sequins, fringed silhouettes and luxurious velvets and furs perfect for after-dark revelry.

The epitome of timeless elegance, Phase Eights  Collection 8 continues to inspire the senses this season.

Perfect for a black tie event or for beautiful Bridesmaids, shimmering embellishment and eye-catching embroidery add drama and excitement to the classic full length silhouette, with each piece in the new  collection evolving as an individual statement.

Delicate straps and sheer panelling evoke a feeling of sensuality, whilst fishtail hems and fitted bodices are reminiscent of the decadent glamour from a bygone era.
