Capitol Couture is about to become a real thing. A new clothing line inspired by the Hunger Games, and designed by the film series' costume designer Trish Summerville is set to launch this fall--and from what we gather, it won't be your average hokey movie-inspired line.
Despite the fact that the Hunger Games novel series is largely considered to be YA fiction, its clothing line counterpart--called Capitol Couture by Trish Summerville--is set to be all grown up. According to the press release, it'll be a 16-piece luxury collection and will launch exclusively on Net-a-Porter.
Holli Rogers, Net-a-Porter's Fashion Director explained of the collaboration:
"When we were approached by Lionsgate [the film's production company] to offer the collection by Trish Summerville to our customers exclusively, we jumped at the chance. Our customers take their style cues from myriad sources, from the latest runway shows and street trends to TV and film. Fashion plays an important role in The Hunger Games series and is especially prevalent in Catching Fire, and fans of the franchise will see the film reference in the collection. This is also brilliant fashion in its own right, and we're delighted to provide our customers with the chance to purchase limited-edition pieces designed by one of the most original costume designers in the industry today."
"I am extremely proud of the designs that we created for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and there's no partner more appropriate for 'Capitol Couture' than the world's most cutting-edge luxury retailer," Summerville said. "I can't wait to share it with the public through this exclusive partnership with Lionsgate and NET-A-PORTER."
Uh, neither can we! The line will launch "in time for the film's worldwide release on November 22," though no exact date has been set. Also no word on price points--but needless to say, we hope we can afford at least some of the items. We're hoping there is a version of Katniss' wedding dress (maybe without the flames) as well as a badass hunting jacket. Stay tuned.
