H&M to Release a ‘Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ Collection (Forum Buzz)

In a move that makes a lot of sense once you think about it, H&M has teamed up with Trish Summerville, the costume designer for Hollywood’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo film, to create a clothing collection inspired by the Lisbeth Salander character. The film, which takes place in Sweden, is based on the insanely popular book by the late Swedish writer, Stieg Larsson, and H&M is Sweden’s most famous fashion brand so the combination seems like a no-brainer.

Salander is a tough girl with tons of piercings and a motorcycle-rock-chick style. The toned down version of her look should be highly covetable as interpreted by Summerville and the team at H&M. Forum members are already excited about what they see. 
 
Hautechild posted, “I've got to say, I'm not really interested in the film and usually not a fan of collaborations but the clothes look awesome! Especially the jackets. I hope they look as good in person.”
 
“Wants every jacket,” TREVOFASHIONISTO stated.
 
“Oh no, I hate that it looks so awesome!” Psylocke laughed before going on to express some reservations. “The quality will probably still be super cheap – especially because it's from the Divided line – and I always hate when H&M releases a cool collection because I know everyone is going to wear it,” she added.
 
The collection will launch exclusively at Colette in Paris on November 28 before being released to 180 H&M stores around the world on December 14. Check out the video below for a behind the scenes look at the collection and the inspiration behind it.
