David Fincher's “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” is not even out in theaters, but it's already setting fashion trends. Clothing giant H&M will come out with a capsule collection inspired by the unmistakable style of leading character Lisbeth Salander.
As fans must know, Salander, she of the “Millennium” trilogy, is known for her trademark style, which includes punk hair, smudged makeup, piercings, leather jackets, washed up jeans, chains and torn tees.
Fashionistas will soon be able to replicate her look, as a new collection is coming out in H&M stores – but they will have to get the hair, the makeup and the piercings somewhere else.
The Daily Mail reports that Trish Summerville, the costume designer on the film, teamed up with H&M in a bid to create a limited collection that would mirror Lisbeth's style, only a bit more fashionable.
The video below, embedded at the end of this article, offers a glimpse of the items that will be included.
“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 armor to shield her from the world,” Summerville says of how she came up with the idea for 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!” she says, as cited by the mail.
As she should be, considering how versatile the new collection claims to be.
“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,” Summerville notes.
Anna Norling, Designer for Divided at H&M, says the new collection targets very independent women, who are not afraid of standing out from the crowd.
“The clothes are all about the attitude – they have a toughness to them but they are also really flattering. The collection is so much more than costume – it’s a fashion statement, it’s modern, and it’s right for now,” Norling explains.
Come November 17, when the new line comes out, women will be able to see for themselves just how edgy and trendy it is.
