Of course, our tributes need custom-made training gear. We can’t have Katniss shooting arrows in nubby sweatpants. Enter Lucas Hugh, a London-based sportswear label that manages to be technologically avant-garde and makes perspiring look glamorous. Helmed by creative director Anjhe Mules, Lucas Hugh is known for its sleek, futuristic style and extreme functionality.
“Most of our materials are performance-based fabrics, which wick moisture away from the body, are UV resistant, and, in some cases, antibacterial,” says Mules, who favors District 12 and our very own Katniss and Peeta for their dignity and honor. “The suits feature a tighter knit that assists blood flow and really compresses the muscles to guard against strain. It’s also great for shaping the figure.”
Katniss and the crew of victors sport designs created exclusively for their pre-Games drills in the Capitol. But you can find Lucas Hugh leggings—with flattering geometric trims—in colors like Rocket Red and Peacock Plum. We applaud our tributes for choosing such forward work out wear, which also draws inspiration from NASA ventures like the Mars Rover mission.
