The 16-piece luxury collection will be called Capitol Couture, and includes jewelry, leather pieces and other ready-to-wear items – sold exclusively on the Net-A-Porter website.

This is not Summerville’s first set of movie costumes that have made it into the fashion world, she also partnered with H&M in 2011 to launch a “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” line of clothing.

Holli Rogers, the retailer’s fashion director said in a press release:

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, 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.

Known for it’s exquisite items, the retailer’s items often come straight from a world-class designer’s runway, which means you can expect the prices to be just as breathtaking.
