I haven’t posted about any designer collborations lately but this new Dragon Tattoo Collection for H&M is a MUST POST! I’m madly in love with this upcoming collection. It has my name written all over it! Leather, denim, combat boots and hoodies…hmm so delicious!
This new H&M Collection is designed by Trish Summerville, the costume designer for the Vogue-cover-worthy forthcoming film The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Summerville designed this collection based on the movie/book character Lisbeth Salander. “Salander (played by Rooney Mara) is weird-looking, unwashed, and always on the run from enemies who she subjects to physical torture, the retailer had to put some work into making her wardrobe “stylishly gritty” and “feminine-feeling” instead of just grimy and unattractive”- WWD via NYMAG.
“We put a lot of aged-in washes and finishes, which goes along the lines of the Salander character. In the film, her clothes are quite extreme. They’re really worn down, they’re dirty,” Summerville said in an exclusive interview.
The line will include “tribal-style earrings” ($3.95), hoodies ($29.95), leather boots ($59.95), and a biker-style leather jacket that comes in different colorways ($199).
Here are my favorite pieces from the collection that I MUST get my hands on…
