Cheap-chic retailer H&M is going edgy and punk with its new collection inspired by the upcoming thriller, “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”
The movie is about a defamed journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Daniel Craig) and a mysterious young genius computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Roony Mara) discovers that even the wealthiest families have skeletons in their closets while working to solve the mystery of Harriet Vanger whose uncle suspects that she may have been killed by a member of their own family 40-years-ago. The movie is a remake of the 2009 Swedish thriller of the same name which was inspired by the late author Stieg Larsson’s successful trilogy of books.
In the movie, the character of Lisbeth Salander is a tough, smart, socially awkward and yet fragile researcher with a penchant for nose rings and harnesses . The film’s costume designer, Trish Summerville, created the 30-piece collection based on the sartorial styling of Lisbeth Salander.
Summerville tried to infuse those designs into the H&M line, which has the “dark urban feel” that defines the character, with “leather jackets and trousers, torn jeans and slouchy hoodies all in industrial shades of black, gray, worn white or dark red,” H&M said in a statement.
Leather jackets, coats, cardigans, pants, skirts, tees, shoes and accessories are all included in the collection, scheduled to be available to be purchased Dec. 14 in about 100 H&M stores worldwide as well as online.
“The Girl with the dragon tattoo” drama|thriller – in theaters Dec 21.
Born Louise Vava Lucia Henriette Le Bailly de la Falaise in England to an aristocratic French family, Loulou was variously described as a friend, iconic fashion muse, designer, ambassador, confidante, party pal and creative partner of Yves Saint-Laurent. She was known for her refined haute bohémienne style, chunky bracelets and necklaces incorporating large colourful stones and rock crystals. Her death was announced by the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation, which did not give a cause. She will be truly missed! (May 4, 1948 – November 5, 2011)
Dior’s Subdued Spring – After fashion’s l’enfant terrible John Galliano was sacked from the label earlier this year, fashion house Christian Dior put atelier director Bill Gaytten at the helm of its spring 2012 collection and the change was quite evident. The new season showcased a less theatric Dior with no overly made-up models or extreme hairstyles, although hats were still present. The women looked modern in classic silhouettes and print gowns made of sheer, silk, tulle and lace fabric, as they came down the catwalk.
Gothic Elegance at McQueen – Sarah Burton’s catwalk masterpiece creations had us smiling with a renewed “joie de vivre”. A delightful mix of gothic, classic, modern, and sequin-embroidered over-the-top details. Dramatic shapes and embellishments composed of hues of gold, blush, lilac, black and ivory completely swept us away…and not to mention the lace, chiffon and silk ensembles that were a classic collection of sensual modernity.
