Capitol Couture: The Hunger Games-inspired jewellery

No work of fiction (since the Twilight phenomenon took the world by storm) has generated as much excitement as Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games trilogy - a massive hit with both teenagers and their parents. The second film adaptation of the series, Catching Fire, was recently released, and audiences were particularly captivated by the lavish and outlandish costumes sported by the citizens of Panem's Capitol.

Collins's Capitol fashion spawned Capitol Couture, a luxury fashion range created by the film's award-winning costume designer, Trish Summerville. The Hunger Games-inspired jewellery ranges also abound, and fans can stock up on replicas of Katniss Everdeen's mockingjay pin or a selection of arrow pendants, bracelets and earrings.

If you think that the only good place for official, branded movie merchandise is in the jewellery box of a pre-teen, you're wrong! You can create your own interpretation of the The Hunger Games look. Start by investing in vintage and antique jewellery pieces that pay subtle homage to Ms Everdeen's style. There are a variety of themes in the trilogy that you can choose from:

The Mockingjay:

Unless you are buying an official replica, it is near impossible to find the film's signature mockingjay design - a bird holding an arrow in its beak. However, vintage brooches and pins with bird-in-flight motifs are not uncommon and capture the spirit of the mockingjay symbol of freedom. In this way, you can also be assured that the quality of your buy will be much higher than that of mass produced movie memorabilia.

Arrows:

Katniss Everdeen is rarely seen without her trusty bow and arrow. Whether found on a vintage men's tie clip, earrings, a pendant or a ring, a well-crafted arrow design will hit the mark every time.

Pearls:

When Peeta Mellark finds a pearl in an oyster, he gives it to Katniss as a gift. This single pearl becomes her talisman, and a symbol of their love and friendship. A vintage or antique pearl drop pendant on a simple chain is an elegant choice that will never go out of fashion.

You may not have Cinna on hand to help out with your wardrobe, but you can capture a bit of the magic of Panem through your style. May the odds be in your favour!
