Stockholm - H&M have collaborated with the costume designer from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo to create a capsule collection inspired by protagonist Lisbeth Salander.
Trish Summerville has created all the outfits for Lisbeth (played by Rooney Mara) in the US adaptation of the Swedish film and she revealed she jumped at the chance to give the troubled heroine's clothes a more "realistic fashion feel" for the Swedish retailer.
Flattering and feminine
She told WWD: "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. So for us, it was taking that kind of concept and giving it more of a realistic fashion feel."
Anna Norling, division designer at H&M, said the company wanted to make Lisbeth's clothes more flattering and feminine.
She explained: "We were really strongly inspired by the film and especially by Trish's styling, but the collection wouldn't have looked as it does without H&M, because we added the fashion point of view. I'm very happy with the result and I know that Trish is as well."
Items in the range include tribal-style earrings, a leather jacket, which comes in washed black or deep burgundy, hoodies and lace-up boots.
The collection will make its debut at Paris boutique Colette on November 28.
