If you’ve ever pined for Katniss Everdeen’s grunge to ball gown glamour or Effie Trinket’s fabulously tricked out frocks, today collaboration announcement is going to make you very, very happy. Net-a-Porter has announced its intention to launch an exclusive The Hunger Games collection with the film’s award-winning costume designer Trish Summerville.
For those of you concerned that Net-A-Porter has turned a commercialized corner towards a popular YA film’s franchise and will likely reveal little else than kitchy costumes and unwearable pieces, take heed — the e-commerce giant’s fashion director, Holli Rogers, explained the deal saying, “Our customers take their style cues from myriad sources, from the latest runway shows and street trends to TV and film. Fashion plays an important role in The Hunger Games series and is especially prevalent in Catching Fire, and fans of the franchise will see the film reference in the collection.”
“This is also brilliant fashion in its own right,” assured Rogers, “and we’re delighted to provide our customers with the chance to purchase limited-edition pieces designed by one of the most original costume designers in the industry today.”
Luxury online fashion retailer Net-A-Porter has recently branched off into the beauty category and adding a highly edited assortment of beauty brands to help customers top off their fashion looks this Spring.
“We are delighted to continue the expansion of the Net-A-Porter brand with the addition of beauty. The move is a natural evolution of our business. We have already established ourselves as a truly global fashion destination and have a super sophisticated, discerning customer with an appetite for newness and the latest trends that extends beyond fashion,” said Alison Loehnis, managing director, Net-A-Porter.com, in a press release.
Brands that will be featured in the new online beauty catalogue will include Chantecaille, Natura Bissé, Aesop, Le Metier de Beaute, 3 Lab, Beauty Works West, Philip B, Joya, Ilia, Sarah Chapman and James Read. Additional beauty items for hair and makeup will be included each week as the category continues to grow and expand.
