Peeta Mellark: Spirit of Strength

Capitol Couture has been waiting eagerly for the next wave of incredible images of our cherished elite, and here they are! Fresh from the excitement of the most eventful Quarter Quell to date, we are thrilled and honored to present the new Capitol Citizen Living Portraits.

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.  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.   


Citizens can witness the artist’s hand-selected series of Living Portraits in person at SOCA this summer.

This. Is. Amazing.

Very excited to debut four new additions to our series of posters inspired by some of the more prominent items in Game of Thrones lore.  This time focusing on poisons potions and stallion hearts. These posters are done in the visual style of French cabaret posters and advertisements from the 1800’s by such masters as Jules Cheret, Leonetto Capiello, and Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec. 

A limited edition of 100 prints are now available through Frodesignco.com

Playlist: New Pop Feminism
In the 1990s TLC, Destiny’s Child, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Missy Elliot, Xena: Warrior Princess, and the Spice Girls introduced an entire generation to messages of girl power and gender equality.
Today, new art and artists have taken up that call, from Beyonce to Orange Is The New Black, from Girls to Lorde. Theirs is not the feminism of the 90s; greater attention is paid to issues of intersectionality between gender, race, sexuality, and class, and the influx of the internet and fragmentations in media and culture have changed the feminist landscape. But many of the underlying issues are the same, now told through new voices. 
Pop culture can be problematic, but it’s also how a lot of people are first introduced to important ideas. With this week’s playlist, we pay tribute to the feminists making waves here and now, ushering in a new generation of girl power.

"In my heart of hearts, I wanted to do the right thing, but selling drugs was easy. Everyone was doing it. I mean, I’m not using that as an excuse, I made my own decisions. But I grew up around these Robin Hood figures who would sell drugs, then buy supplies for kids who were going back to school, or pay rent for an old woman who was about to get evicted. All my friends were doing it. It almost seemed fashionable. I never felt proud of it. I always thought I’d transition to a job with the Transit Authority, or a job like this— something I’d feel good about, but instead I transitioned to jail. I did six years. When I got out, it was tempting to go back to the easy money, because everyone around me was still doing it, and I couldn’t get a job. But luckily I found an agency that helps ex-cons, because there aren’t many companies looking to give people a second chance. I’ve had this job for a few years now. You know what product I’m selling now? Myself. Everyone around here is my client. Times Square is a drug to these people. And I’m picking up all the trash so that they can have the full Times Square experience."
