Fashion has always been a central part of the Hunger Games franchise. From the very first film, the youthful contestants of the movies’ central competitions have been brought into the capitol city and paraded in front of its citizens. Each pair of survivors are assigned their own personal designer, who manage to crank out crazy future cloths to complement their home districts.
To mark the upcoming sequel Mockingjay: Part 1, these living portraits of two Hunger Games champions have been created by the fictional Panem fashion blog Capitol Couture.
Take a look.
According to the press notes:
Peeta stands tall and true in his Capitol Citizen Living Portrait, his matte leather Unconditional ensemble showcasing a stone-like texture and channeling the victor’s quiet strength. With an unprecedented two victories under his belt, Peeta is no longer the boy who bravely faced the 74th Hunger Games, but a true Capitol hero.
Here we also see Johanna in an exquisite Alon Livne creation that “juxtaposes the flowing drapery of classic statuary while the super modern and sculptural iridescent white bodice references the branch motif of the Panem Seal.” With plunging lines and slits as daring and divine as the warrior woman herself, every element of Johanna’s ensemble exudes her fierce strength and enduring pride- a true darling of the Capitol.
