Leonardo Dicaprio - Great Gatsby costumes to be displayed

Costumes from 'The Great Gatsby' go on display in London today (18.04.13).

Menswear brand Brooks Brothers have collaborated with the movie's costume designer Catherine Martin for the exhibition, which will see 20 pieces worn by cast members including Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan showcased in their Regent Street store.

Catherine - who is married to the film's director Baz Luhrmann - said: ''Brooks Brothers is mentioned numerous times in Fitzgerald's writings as a representation of the ultimate gentleman's purveyor of fine clothing to the American man of distinction.

''It is this most basic and fundamental connection that has made our collaboration so authentic.''

Brooks Brothers were responsible for the menswear outfits in the film, and have also worked with Catherine on a limited-edition collection to mark their involvement in the movie.

Catherine added: ''It was a pleasure to research and design menswear of this period and see it realised with such panache by Brooks Brothers.

''It is a reflection of the immediacy and modernity of Fitzgerald's work in this new collection.''

The special collection also goes on sale today (18.04.13).
