Hunger Games highlights fashion's relationship with films

Nov '13
High fashion and films have always enjoyed a close relationship—whether based upon a period drama or imaginary world—movies have never failed to generate that extra amount of interest among the audience if they include clothes to die for.
 
Film costumes inspired clothing lines have become a norm of the day and box-office biggies like ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, the latest instalment from the Hunger Games franchise series, are carrying the trend forward by releasing fashion collections based on styles showcased in their films.
 
Ahead of its premiere last week, the American film’s multi-award winning costume designer Trish Summerville launched a 19-piece range, inspired from the movie’s stoic teenage protagonist katniss Everdeen, with the world’s leading online luxury shopping destination Net-A-Porter.
 
Other than the newly unveiled fashion pieces, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a true sartorial delight in itself with costumes crafted by some of the most innovative names in the world, such as the Indonesian talent Tex Saverio, Korean designer Juun J and the house of Alexander McQueen.
 
Earlier this year, Baz Luhrmann’s screen adaptation of the American novel ‘The Great Gatsby’ also offered the viewers a slice of high-fashion through its Roaring Twenties-inspired shimmering velvet and fur accented gowns. Created by the Australian costumer Catherine Martin in collaboration with Italian powerhouse Prada, the film featured an array of crystal and fringe adorned emerald, jade, topaz and gold coloured sweeping dresses.
 
Last year, the English period drama ‘Anna Karenina’ took viewers on an exciting journey into the extravagant lives of the 19th century Russian aristocrats through its gorgeous display of Jacqueline Durran designed classy lavish costumes. Later, a limited-edition 56-piece capsule range, inspired from the movie heroine Keira Knightley’s vintage-inspired looks, was also unveiled by the American luxury clothing retailer Banana Republic.
