Fans of the hit BBC drama Killing Eve can now enjoy Villanelle’s most striking styles from the show in Jodie Comer’s home-city of Liverpool after the fourth series came to an explosive end this week. The Killing Eve collection display at Liverpool ONE features original costumes from the award-winning show and celebrates all four iconic seasons of killer fashion.
Produced by BBC Creative, the broadcaster’s in-house creative agency, the display is a bold tribute to the central role that costumes and fashion played in the show, the evolution of the style across the four series, and the wider cultural influence of the programme. Exhibited over five large-scale shop windows on Lord Street, the display showcases the now-iconic outfits and props of Jodie Comer’s character Villanelle in the city of the actress’ birth.
These include the pink tulle dress from season one, the memorable pig head and Bavarian dirndl costume for series two, the cheery but terrifying clown attire from series three and the ‘angelic’ white dress in the final series. At the centre of the entire display is a homage to the show’s second protagonist, Eve, acknowledging the stylistic differences between the two characters.
Creative Director at BBC Creative, Ali Dickinson, said: “This is one of those rare shows that has had a genuine impact on culture. The fashion in Killing Eve really is like nothing else, so what better way to celebrate it than with a shopper-stopping high-fashion window display. It’s such a joy to be able to create advertising as bold and disruptive as the show itself. As Villanelle would say, it’s anything but “BOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRINGGGGG.”
The Killing Eve costume display will be on show at Liverpool ONE from April 13 until April 22. The full series of Killing Eve is also available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
