We’ve already had Hunger Games nail polish and soon a we’ll have full Hunger Games makeup line, so it was really only a matter of time before we got a Hunger Games fashion collection, wasn’t it? And I’m kind of stupidly excited about it, too. Because seriously—who WOULDN’T want the chance to wear something as ridiculous as this?
It was announced yesterday that Lionsgate, the studio behind The Hunger Games, has teamed up with everyone’s favorite luxury e-retailer, Net-A-Porter, for an exclusive fashion partnership celebrating the upcoming release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Designed by the film’s costume designer, Trish Summerville, the Capitol Couture by Trish Summerville collection will consist of 16 ready-to-wear pieces full of laser-cut leather, streamlined silhouettes, and dramatic evening wear; jewelry and leather goods will be included as well. The line will hit Net-A-Porter in time for Catching Fire’s November 22 release date, presumably so you can get all dolled up in your Capitol Couture finery for the midnight showing we know you’re planning on going to.
Unfortunately we don’t have too many details of what we can actually expect from the line; personally, though, I really, REALLY hope it includes these items:
1. Wallets embossed with the seal of Panem (how sweet would that be?).
2. At least one of Effie Trinket’s crazy wigs. They count as jewelry, right?
3. Or, if we can’t get one of Effie’s wigs, then can we at least get one of those wacky combination hair bow-hat things she’s so fond of?
4. Katniss’ wedding dress. Because ZOMG.
5. Or, barring that, Katniss’ red evening gown from her first Cesar Flickerman interview.
6. A cravat. The gents of the Capitol love their cravats.
7. Whatever that high-collared, neo-Victorian bolero thing the gal on the left is wearing here. LOVE.
8. A black jumpsuit that bursts into flames on command.
Most of this might be wishful thinking, but I mean, really. How awesome would it be if they ended up being true?
