Stieg Larrson’s international bestselling novel, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, has become the inspiration for the latest collection from Swedish based retailer, H&M.
Larrson’s heroin, Lisbeth Salander is famous for her effortless goth-punk style and all around bad-ass appeal. Gearing up for the December 21st premiere of David Fincher’s film version starring Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig, H&M has strategically saved the international release of the line until December 14th.
The collection shows off Lisbeth’s dark style, which translates perfectly into reality, and the pieces created by H&M have not sacrificed wearability in their attempts to maintain the authenticity of the Salander character.
Perhaps Trish Summerville, the costume designer for Fincher’s film adaptation, could have something to do with the cool collection. Summerville was recruited to design the new line.
“I wanted the collection to have the essence and strength of Salander, with a fashion edge, and I’m pleased with the result!” Summerville told the Hollywood Reporter, “My goal is for women to find pieces in it that they love and then mix them with their own wardrobe to create their own personal style.”
Chalk full of leather, muted colors, and simple designs, this collection is all about individual pieces that can be easily incorporated into anyone’s wardrobe.
Summerville has created a collection that will make women all over feel like their own dark super-heroine.
Although all 175 H&M stores will have to wait until December for the collection to arrive, Parisian shoppers, however, are in luck: the line will be available at Paris boutique Colette on November 28th.
