It's once more the 1920's trend !
From wedding planners websites, to Bro0ke's Brothers catalogues, jumping to the April /13 Vogue US editorial, Estie's newsletters to name a few, Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald ( an American author of novels and short stories and widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century is haunting us once more with the paradigm writings of the Jazz Age, a term he coined himself and a true lesson of style living the world of American Society wealth.
Considered a member of the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s, Scott finished four novels: This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby— and his most famous— my favorite of all , Tender Is the Night .
The Great Gatsby has been the basis for numerous films of the same name, spanning nearly 90 years; 1926, 1949, 1974, 2000, and an upcoming 2013 adaptation co-written and directed by Baz Luhrmann, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan. It follows the life and times of millionaire Jay Gatsby and his neighbor Nick, who recounts his encounter with Gatsby at the height of the Roaring Twenties.
Set in the prosperous Long Island in 1922, The Great Gatsby provides a critical social history of America during the Roaring Twenties within its compelling literary narrative. That era, known for unprecedented economic prosperity, the evolution of jazz music, the flapper culture, and bootlegging and other criminal activity, is plausibly depicted in Fitzgerald's novel. Fitzgerald utilizes these societal developments of the 1920s to build Gatsby's stories from simple details like automobiles to broader themes like Fitzgerald's discreet allusions to the organized crime culture which was the source of Gatsby's fortune. Fitzgerald educates his readers about the garish society of the Roaring Twenties by placing a timeless, relatable plotline within the historical context of the era.
