I am officially obsessed with The Hunger Games. The storyline, emotional turmoil, Jennifer Lawrence (aka Katniss Everdeen), the costumes and the set design. All of it is just so inspiring to me. I just recently caught the second instalment, Catching Fire at the cinema and it did not disappoint.
Catching Fire felt like a big step up visually from the first film and the costumes played a huge part in this. Costume designer Trish Summerville was able to borrow several pieces from Alexander McQueen, which you will see sprinkled throughout the film. The butterfly dress from McQueen’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection was my favourite.
The set design of the Capitol was amazing, I loved the attention to detail in every shot.
The McQueen pieces were mainly worn by Effie, I think they complimented her character perfectly.
Extras were individually dressed by the wardrobe team and some even had little back stories created for them. In order to make the residents of the Capitol feel true to the story, this step was essential.
More interiors goodness from the Capitol. Just look at those lighting fixtures.
Katniss Everdeen’s wedding dress was designed by Tex Saverio.
He modified the stunning gown from his Spring 2013 bridal collection.
This dress worn by Katniss has said to be inspired by the Christopher Kane Fall 2012 collection.
There is so much to look at while watching Catching Fire and I could easily give this film an extra view or two. I’ve already started the countdown for the third instalment, a year is such a long time to wait!
