New York/Santa Monica, CA—One of this fall’s most highly anticipated movie sequels, “The Hunger Fames: Catching Fire” will have its own luxury apparel and accessories collection on sale exclusively at Net-a-Porter.
The film, the second installment of Lionsgate’s blockbuster “The Hunger Games” franchise, is scheduled to open Nov. 22, but the collection, which consists of 16 ready-to-wear pieces, jewelry and leathergoods, will be available online in November only at Net-a-Porter.
Known as “Capitol Couture by Trish Summerville,” the collection was designed by Summerville who serves as costume designer for the film series.
“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.”
Style Awards Honor Summerville as ‘Costume Designer of the Year’
“When we were approached by Lionsgate to offer the collection by Trish Summerville to our customers exclusively, we jumped at the chance,” said Holli Rogers, fashion director at Net-a-Porter. 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.”
Summerville will be honored tonight as Costume Designer of the Year on behalf of her work for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” at the 10th Annual Style Awards, which kicks off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
