The Hunger Games Costumes - How Fashion can they be?

(Now our new online store: www.lux-a-porter.com)

I´m an huge fan of the "Hunger Games". I know it´s not an intelectual movie and I cannot tell why I became so addicted: if the story itself, the addrenaline, the amazing costumes or maybe these all together!

The responsable for the costumes in The Hunger Games  was Trish Summerville: “The goal was to make it darker, moodier, and more lush,” she says. 

Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton designed the red dress worn by Elizabeth Banks as Effie on the right. Burton also designed the wedding dress of Kate Middleton. 
“I contacted McQueen’s public relations team and told them how we were changing from the first to second films, and what character we wanted their pieces on and what we wanted to achieve. They were lovely about loaning us one of a kind and archive pieces.”

The dress worn by Jennifer Lawrence for the Capitol Couture is similar to ones created by the Alexander McQueen for the AW11 collection.
“Jakartan designer Tex Saverio and I collaborated on the dress. We discussed fabrics and how we needed it to catch light and air and to flow, and it needed to burn away for when the Mockingjay dress comes out. I wanted the metal bodice to feel like a frame. We used feathers to incorporate Girl on Fire and the Mockingjay.”

“For the Mockingjay dress, there’s supplemental printing on layers of chiffon with different images of blue jays, mocking birds, peacocks, and pheasants. There’s a corseted bodice at the top, and we worked with an illustrator who constructed a literal image on the bodice and feathers on the skirt, and metallic chiffon to catch light. Finally, I paired it with cobalt blue Jimmy Choos that Jen (Lawrence) really loved.”

The one worn by Katniss during their victory tour was inspired by Christopher Kane. 

Effie in Alexander McQueen:
“There were some unbelievable pieces McQueen sent, and we pretty much used all. Effie wears dresses with an exaggerated hip area and exaggerated collar. It’s all about her constantly being uncomfortable, cinching her waist too tight, like she’s always doing penance.”

More McQueen:
“It was so incredible with Elizabeth Banks, even at the first set of fittings. She came in as Elizabeth Banks, no makeup, her own clothes. As soon as she put the costumes on, her posture would become erect and she had this torque where her chest is in and bum out and her hands would go up—and you knew that was Effie Trinket!”

Joanna in... again, yes, you´ve guessed:
“If I had to describe Johanna in three words, it would be: Intense, ferocious, and hard. This dress is made out of cork pressed into a fabric with tiny brass nails in it; it’s perfect for her. It’s shredded at the bottom, so it looks like falling leaves. Her chariot costume (not pictured), is one of my favorite I designed. She wore McQueen boots have a patina on them that looks like vines. But you only see her from the waist up! I was heartbroken. I hope there are some head to toe images of her that will surface at some point.”

The last movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 will have its World Premiere tour in London on November 10th, but will begin in Beijing on November 1st and end in Los Angeles on November 17th at the Nokia Theatre.
