Summerville, who launched a capsule collection with Net-a-Porter in November following the popularity of her Hunger Games work, chose to work on the film adaption of David Fincher‘s Gone Girl instead of completing the Hunger Games series, Summerville’s rep confirmed to Pret-a-Reporter.
Although the design duo wouldn’t reveal any details of the project, they did express being “so excited” when reached via email.
Mueller and Swanson are nominated for a Costume Designers Guild Award for their recent work on the Matthew McConaughey– and Jared-Leto-starring Dallas Buyers Club. “With such committed actors, we really loved being part of bringing these characters to the screen,” they said about their nomination. “The fact that it’s getting so much attention and that people are seeing this movie is really rewarding. The CDG nomination is icing on the cake.?”
They previously worked on Britney Spears‘ “Lucky,” “Stronger” and “Slave 4 U” music videos and also designed the look of HBO’s fashion industry-focused How to Make It in America.
