Imagine being in The Hunger Games, standing in the middle of the Capitol, engulfed in a sea of people with pink hair and bright clothing that glitters and shines. For many, this image creates exactly what they want: a dream come true. How cool would it be for the biggest fans to be able to take part in the fashion and future of their favorite books and movies? Well now is their chance.
Thanks to Trish Summerville, costume designer for the cast of The Hunger Games series, the clothing line with the name Capitol Couture now exists. This line is sure to hit home with the beloved fans and will be released by the airing of the next movie as a 16-piece luxury collection, exclusively through Net-a-Porter.
People dream of dressing as their favorite characters, copying their style and being just like their movie idols. Well, for those people it won’t have to be confined to just Halloween night.
“I think it’s really cool that this line is being created, I didn’t know it existed until now, but I’m looking forward to seeing it when it’s released,” said senior Megan Krieglmeier.
Whether or not the line will sell is questionable. It’s hard to say without seeing the final products and their costs. There’s no doubt that it will get attention though.
“I would totally buy something Hunger Games, especially clothes because I love the movie and their costumes! I imagine the clothes for the public would be less extravagant than the movie too,” said senior Megan Letkeman.
Some might wonder whether or not we are taking this movie series too far and if an entire clothing line is a little over the top. Most would likely say no, but then again most people are crazy about the books and the movies.
“This line is really cool, it seems like a super unique way to provide for the fans and to keep them involved in the series,” said Krieglmeier.
According to Summerville through an interview on fashionista.com, she is “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.”
This line is the perfect way to create a world like the Capitol for people today. It’s a way for fans to stay in touch with the life of their favorite characters, so for the hardcore fans out there, keep an eye out for this very unique fashion line.
