Capitol Couture celebrates the ‘achievements’ of the Capitol with a special issue

cc special issue

Yesterday, Capitol Couture released a special issue to celebrate the “incredible achievements” that have come from the Capitol.

Each member of the Capitol Couture team brings their unique experience and insight to every page we construct. Focusing on the collaborative nature of life, art, and fashion, this installment of Capitol Couture will highlight the success we can achieve through working together. This being said, the whole staff at Capitol Couture, would like to collectively welcome you to our special edition issue.

We will visit Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason, whose united skills have delivered them from yet another arena. We will introduce you to the One Panem initiative and the Capitol Ministry of Information- a fresh government branch with a highly fashionable leader, dedicated to the unification of our country and all its myriad strengths. We will spotlight the selfless, charitable members of the Capitol, donating their time and effort to give back to the people of Panem. And naturally, we will bring you the latest, hottest fashion, featuring designers creating together for the most fabulous future imaginable.

As always, dear readers, we encourage you to be relevant. Be chic. Be collaborative. Be Capitol.

Part of this issue are the living portraits of our beloved victors, Johanna Mason (Jena Malone) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). Johanna displays “statuesque allure,” while Peeta embodies the “spirit of strength“:

As our Quarter Quell victors, Peeta Mellark and Johanna Mason hold the distinct honor of being the first Capitol citizens featured within a Living Portrait.  Here we see Johanna in an exquisite Alon Livne creation that “juxtaposes the flowing drapery of classic statuary while the super modern and sculptural iridescent white bodice references the branch motif of the Panem Seal.”  With plunging lines and slits as daring and divine as the warrior woman herself, every element of Johanna’s ensemble (including her Alexander Wang shoes and hand-carved marble bangles by Chen Chen and Kai Williams) exudes her fierce strength and enduring pride- a true darling of the Capitol.


Peeta stands tall and true in his Capitol Citizen Living Portrait, his matte leather Unconditional ensemble showcasing a stone-like texture and channeling the victor’s quiet strength, completed by shirt and shoes courtesy of Maison Martin Margiela. The paper collar piece, designed by David Mason, mirrors the sculptural elements in Johanna’s dress and gives a stern ambiance to the baker’s son. With an unprecedented two victories under his belt, Peeta is no longer the boy who bravely faced the 74th Hunger Games, but a true Capitol hero.


A couple things we noticed:

1. When you cursor over the title “Fida Coeur” the letters develop a heartbeat (which makes sense since coeur is French for heart).

2. Peeta’s face in the living portrait! Who knew someone could convey so much emotion in one look!

3. Johanna might be cooperating, but she’s not happy about it.

4. Both of them are really tense. You can see them trying (and failing) not to make fists.

You can check out the special issue HERE. What did you think of the living portraits?
