Online luxury fashion retailer Net-a-Porter is teaming up with film company Lionsgate to launch a clothing collection inspired by ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’. The ‘Capitol Couture by Trish Summerville’ collection, designed by the film’saward-winning costume designer, will feature 16 ready-to-wear pieces as well as jewellery and leather goods inspired by the highly anticipated second film of the global blockbuster ‘The Hunger Games’ franchise.
Launching exclusive on Net-a-Porter this autumn, in time for the film’s worldwide release in November, the capsule collection features laser-cut leather, streamlined silhouettes and dramatic eveningwear.
"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," said Summerville. "I can't wait to share it with the public through this exclusive partnership with Lionsgate and Net-a-Porter."
Holli Rogers, fashion director at Net-a-Porter added: "When we were approached by Lionsgate 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.
Trish Summerville to launch Hunger Games collection
“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."
This isn’t Summerville’s first fashion collection, the costume designer who has won a Costumer Designer’s Guild Award, has previously collaborated with H&M on a womenswear range inspired by the Lisbeth Salander character from the 2011 film ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ that she also worked on.
The Hunger Games franchise has become known for its fashion, and designers including Alexander McQueen have been featured in the films. In addition to the fashion line, the franchise has also produced a beauty line with Covergirl.
‘Capitol Couture by Trish Summerville’ will be available exclusively to Net-a-Porter from November.
