At this point, it's hard to say who doesn't have a crush on Jennifer Lawrence or her Hunger Games character, Katniss Everdeen. The highly sought after actress and her even more in-demand alias have been ever in the favor of fans, film-goers, and fiction-lovers since the bestselling book by Suzanne Collins became a $691-million-grossing film (with parts two and three not yet released).
Now as mockingjay mania mounts in anticipation of the soon-to-be-released second film, Catching Fire, Hunger Games franchise owners Lionsgate Films are teaming up with online luxury fashion and beauty retailer Net-a-Porter to give fans a special dose of Effie-approved merchandise: a couture clothing line.
Capitol Couture by Trish Summerville will be a 16-piece clothing collection inspired by the fashion of Catching Fire and created by the film's costume designer. Sold exclusively on Net-a-Porter.com, Capitol Couture will also feature Hunger Games-style jewelry and leather goods.
For those who are hesitant to get excited over a Hunger Games fashion capsule, it should be noted that this week Summerville was named "Costume Designer of the Year" at the 10th Annual Style Awards during the 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week -- specifically for her work on the upcoming film.
Capitol Couture by Trish Summerville is set to launch sometime around the worldwide release of Catching Fire on November 22. To sign up for notifications about the upcoming collection, visit net-a-porter.com/capitolcouturecollection.
