This morning, director Baz Luhrmann and costume designer Catherine Martin were on hand to unveil the new Gatsby-inspired window displays at Tiffany & Co.'s flagship New York City store. In celebration of Warner Bros.' The Great Gatsby, Tiffany & Co. and Martin have joined forces to create not only the stunning window displays, but also an inspired jewelry collection seen throughout the film and available to buy. But buyers beware: owning a piece of Gatsby doesn't come cheap. Prices range from $135 for simple black onyx earrings to upwards of $875,000 for a diamond cocktail ring.

While Tiffany & Co. handled the sparkle on the set of Luhrmann's adaptation, Brooks Brothers produced all of the menswear. Martin's choice of partners was no accident – author F. Scott Fitzgerald was a customer of both Tiffany & Co. and Brooks Brothers, a nod to the authenticity of the film. Brooks Brothers adapted Martin's costume designs to create The Gatsby Collection of suits, shoes and other accessories, available in stores and online now. The 1920s Brooks Brothers logo was even used – icing on the cake, if you ask us.
Right now, Brooks Brothers' Madison Avenue store is hosting an exhibit of Martin's Gatsby costumes. If you’re in the area, stop by and see the Hollywood glamour up close, and maybe add to your own closet while you're there.
So when The Great Gatsby arrives in theaters May 10, ladies grab your diamonds and men put on your ivory linen suit. It's going to be an extravagant night on the town.
