Girl Rage

Noomi Rapace as tattooed hacker Lisbeth Salander became an instant Twin heroine. With her dyed black crop and piercings, Rapace’s goth-punk look in the original Swedish film version of best-seller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was a refreshing fashion inspiration. And so it seems Salander has been for Swedish fashion giants H&M. Having collaborated since 2004 with a host of designers and fashion houses such as Karl Lagerfeld and Lanvin, H&M have found an unlikely muse in Lisbeth Salander.

To celebrate David Fincher’s American film-remake, this time starring actress Rooney Mara, H&M have asked the film’s costume designer Trish Summerville to create a line inspired by The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. “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 armour to shield her from the world,” says Summerville.

Going on the single released image as yet, the 30-piece collection has a dark urban feel featuring leather jackets and trousers, torn jeans and slouchy hoodies in industrial shades of black, grey and worn white. With H&M exploring their dark-side, we already feel sucked in.

The collection will debut exclusively at Colette in Paris on November 28, before being made available on December 14 at 180 H&M stores around the world.
