Why Not Do It With Some Style?

Hunger Games Clothing Line Is Available for Purchase Despite a Serious Lack of Butterfly Dresses



[View All on One Page]

When The Hunger Games costume designer Trish Summerville sat down to craft her Capitol Couture collection, she left behind a lot of the… shall we say extreme fashions worn by Capitol denizens. Probably a good call. Who could pull this look off but Effie Trinket, after all?

But my own personal opinion, speaking as a Fashion Expert (by which I mean “someone who wears clothes that have some sort of fashion to them”), is that these clothes are far too normal. What the hell?! I’d actually wear some of them if I had the money! And sure, technically they’re inspired by the films as a whole, not just the Capitol. But it’s called Capitol Couture and there’s no neon! I am disappoint. What do you think?

    I think two huge mistakes were made here. First, none of these things remotely spark the idea that they are Hunger Games merch, aside from the “Girl on FIre”. I would love to see vaguely normal dresses that are based on the ones the tributes wore. The only piece I like is the leather leggings that look pretty bad ass.

    Second, the price point. This is probably some la-ti-da fashion boutique, but if the franchise is going to put out an official set of clothing it should be a commonly affordable price point. Something in the range of $25 to $150 would be appropriate for the average buyer, in my opinion. Especially when you look at the fact that these are technically young adult books and most teens don’t have $900 disposable income to blow on a dress.

    Looks more like the Katniss Kollection than Capitol Couture. *shrugs*

    Whose bright idea was it to have the “girl on fire” shirt/sweatshirt be black on gray? I’ve seen plenty of better interpretations on shirt-a-day websites.

    None of these items scream Capitol let alone Hunger Games anything. These are just average clothing pieces with the Hunger Games franchise taped onto it. Not very impressed to say the least.

    I want the leather jacket and the “Girl on Fire” shirt, but they cost way too much, unfortunately.
