Trish Summerville, costume designer of the Hunger Games series, may have created a capsule collection inspired the Capitol’s avant-garde inhabitants (available now at Net-a-Porter, FYI) — but why buy something inspired by the film when you can have the real thing?
Today, you can purchase the exact activewear sported by Jennifer Lawrence, aka Katniss Everdeen, and the other tributes while training for the games in the latest film. Meaning, the things you can do in these sleek, futuristic workout clothes include: shooting arrows, starting fires and attempting to make allies.
Or, you could just do normal workout stuff at the gym or whatever.
The collection by London-based designer Lucas Hugh is actually inspired by New York City, which could qualify as the real-life version of The Capitol. The pants, jackets, tank tops, sports bras and swimwear all feature a nocturnal skyline print of NYC, shot by aerial photographer Jason Hawkes. The fabrics are described as “lightweight and supportive,” and innovative features include strategically hidden pockets, body-contouring lines, ventilation panels and fused seams. All necessary for training to become a killing machine, we’re sure.
The collection is available now at Avenue 32.
