H&M Announces Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Collection Inspired by the Movie

By  | 

Today H&M has surprised fashion and movie fans by announcing a collection based on the movie, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” Seriously, who knew this was coming? Not me!  If any of you have seen the movie or read the books, then you know that the heroine  Lisbeth Salander is a bad ass.  Lisabeth has been done wrong, and in each movie/book she sets out to right the wrongs using her wits and Internet skills.   She’s like Dirty Harry meets Chrissie Hynde (in my opinion.)  For the collection, H&M has hired the film’s costume designer , Trish Summerville, to create the dark, goth looks for this one.

 “Salander’s look is very real and very lived in, with pieces that her character has worn for a long time, like her jackets that act as her armour to shield her from the world. I wanted the collection to have the essence and strength of Salander, with a fashion edge, and I’m pleased with the result,” Summerville said. The 30 piece collection consists of hoodies, leather jackets and pants, slouchy tees and hooded sweaters.  This is fashion to stay on the QT in, like Lisabeth Salander does.

Look for the pieces to surface in H&M stores Dec. 14th to coincide with the American version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, based on Steig Larsson’s novel.  The movie, which stars Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig, opens in December.

    Love! Though I still dislike the idea of remaking this. The foreign version was great!
