The Girl with the H&M Line

H&M Dragon Tattoo collection

It’s not the most obvious homage by fashion to film, but you can’t blame H&M for trying. With the release of the English-language version of the Swedish film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo imminent (although a later Jan. 12 in Australia), those in the Northern Hemisphere can also step into Lisbeth Salander’s shoes, well her lace-up boots anyway, from Dec. 14 (see preview, above). The collaboration gets even more kudos, being created for the Swedish chain by the film’s costume designer, Trish Summerville.

Says Summerville: “Salander’s look is very real and very lived in, with pieces that her character has worn for a long time. I wanted the collection to have the essence and strength of Salander, with a fashion edge, and I’m pleased with the result! 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.”

If those women are already fans of cyberpunk hacker chic, then they’ll be lapping it up. Let’s just hope they only steal Lisbeth’s style, not her storylines.

Meanwhile, here’s the film’s trailer…
