Vogue Featured A Ralph Lauren Suit For Hamish Bowles Paying Homage To The 1974 Gatsby Featuring Robert Redford

This is a terrific ensemble on Hamish Bowles below and you can see more of it at Vogue.Com but the reason why I mention it is because it was specifically designed for Hamish Bowles as a recreation of Robert Redford's 1974 Gatsby suit for his 50th birthday. It is an example of a wider notched lapel we see coming back into trend, the waistcoat which is featuring prominently at the moment and the use of pastels on pastels for summer. Here we see an apple-blossom pink paired with a lilac satin tie and softened by a baby blue cotton shirt with a white collar. This is a stellar ensemble.

An excerpt from Vogue.Com reads:

"For the party hosted by Anna Wintour to fete his birthday and 21 years at Vogue, Bowles decided to go to the sartorial source for Gatsby dress code: commissioning the men’s design team at Ralph Lauren to create a complete custom reproduction of the suit that Robert Redford wore as Jay Gatsby in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1974 film (Lauren designed the costumes for the film almost 40 years ago). This translated to a fine-worsted wool gabardine three-piece ensemble custom-dyed an apple-blossom pink to Bowles and Lauren’s specifications. This was complemented by a lilac satin tie and antique fob chain and diamond and emerald Deco pin. Redford must not be accustomed to having competition in the looks department, but in this instance he met his match."
