A new look at Katniss Everdeen in full warrior gear is featured in the Fall Preview edition of Entertainment Weekly!
Along with the still, director Francis Lawrence is breaking down Katniss’ new style and how it harkens back to Cinna’s other designs for The Mockingjay.
Mockingjay introduces a more somber color palette in its new costumes and locales, including rebel headquarters in District 13. “You’re sort of hit with the harsh reality of the consequences of war,” director Francis Lawrence says.”
Katniss dons sleek body armour with protective boots, knee and elbow pads, and a tailor-made chest plate that sparkles with an iridescent indigo sheen recalling the feather-trimmed gown she wore in Catching Fire. “It’s the warrior version of her mockingjay look,” says the director.
Katniss’ trademark gold-plated Mockingjay pin has been exchanged for a new black-on-black token. “Stylistically, this is something that Cinna designed for her before he was beaten in Catching Fire,” Francis Lawrence says.”
