We’re not sure how many fashion designers have torn through the pages of the über popular, post-apocalyptic young adult series The Hunger Games, but our guess is at least some have visited the trilogy and thought enough of it to bring it into their work. Amid other trendlets on Fall runways–florals and heavy embellishment, to name a couple–we sensed a tribute to Hunger’s fierce heroine, Katniss Everdeen, aka the girl on fire.
Flames were a theme—Jean-Charles de Castelbajac set simple black ensembles alight with licks of metallic gold and red, and Rick Owens lined his runway with a controlled bonfire. Nicola Formichetti and Sébastien Peignéwent showed less literal references at Mugler, with an ember-orange dress and inferno-red pantsuit–the only signs of color in a starkly black and white show.
