    The Great Gatsby’s Influence on Fashion

    The world is buzzing, loudly, about all things Gatsby. Unless you have been living in a cave you probably know that this Baz Luhrmann directed remake of the novel and Robert-Redford-starring film of the same name, is set to have a spectacular opening weekend at the box office. E! News is projecting The Great Gatsby to have a debut north of $40 million. We’ll have to wait and see what Leo’s star power can do these days!

     

    As with any epic movie spectacle, rich with music and fashion, the rest of the world can’t help but want to be a part of it too. Addicted to fashion bloggers lately, every day I am finding more and more fantastic articles written about the fashion of the Gatsby era and ways to infuse its sensibility into your current wardrobe. I especially liked this one from Refinery29.com From tennis whites to drop wasted dresses to graphic prints and deco jewelry, the Gatsby era brings with it an excitement and freshness that the world hasn’t seen in quite some time. From the feminine feathered embellishments to the shift dresses and t-strap shoes, it’s quite easy to embrace the trend.  Oh, and let’s not forget the FRINGE!

     

    While the influence for our spring collection is about 20 years past the Gatsby era, the look and feel of it is decidedly glamorous. During the time that the Gatsby’s were partying in the Hampton’s, the west coast was beginning to embrace what we now refer to as Old Hollywood glamour. When looking at all of these amazing Gatsby inspired fashions I keep thinking how our designs have just enough of that flavor to help you embrace your inner Gatsby as well.

    Brandon London (Jersey Off, Suit On) visits Nikki Rich and Crome today

    Honestly, there is nothing better than a man…a tall, handsome, athletic man…who understands and appreciates fashion. Today we had the absolute honor of meeting Canadian Football League wide receiver Brandon London. Currently playing for the Montreal Alouettes, Brandon is no stranger to Football having played with teams like the New York Giants, The Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers, and trust me, he is no stranger to fashion either.

     

    “Cultured Athlete Lifestyle” is a term Brandon has coined (don’t you just love it!), and he uses his website “Jersey Off, Suit On” (don’t you just love that too!) as a vehicle to showcase his taste and introduce new brands to other young men who have a keen sense of style and take the utmost pride in their appearance.

     

    We had a great time showing Brandon around our office and an even better time dressing him in Crome. He loved what he saw and thought the looks that we have been developing for the collection would be perfect for his audience. We even had a few samples that he was able to try on. I’ve attached a few pictures of us below and promise to share the footage from “Jersey Off, Suit On” with you as soon as it becomes available.

     

    Don’t you just love a man with style?
