H&M's Next Collab Inspired by The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

To coincide with the highly anticipated premiere of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (from Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy, directed by David Fincher) H&M will launch a capsule collection inspired by the film in collaboration with Trish Summerville, the movie's costume designer. Check out the brief video above to hear Trish talk about the inspiration for the dark, urban feeling collection - replete with leather jackets and torn jeans - a nod to the anti-heroine, Lisbeth Salander. The collection drops December 14, think you'll check it out? I'm curious to see the film (although I'm afraid it might be too scary for me, I'm such a chicken).

I have mixed feelings over this. I am obsessed with the books. Loved the Swedish films and adore actress Noomi Rapace. Rooney looks like she's going to pull this off well too. Lisbeth is a complicated and dark character..not a fashionista. Starting a fashion collection based on her is absurd and takes away the serious nature of Lisbeth. Ugh..I hate saying this but she's my favorite literary character ever. As for the film it will be brutal. No doubt there and I can't wait. With that said a part of me is very curious about this collection. I may even give in and get a piece. Its definitely right up my alley.

A little to dark and gritty for me!

If the line will be as good as all books, then I will not have a problem gettting some pieces ;-)

I love the clothes! They match my own character...too bad there are no H&M's here.
