H&M announced today a 30 piece collection designed for the brand by Trish Somerville, costume designer of David Fincher’s film version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, starring Rooney Mara.
The collection somewhat predictably offers leather jackets, slouchy hoodies, torn denim and jersey tops that are drapey and somewhat aggressive-looking. The collection will debut at Colette in Paris on November 28th, followed by a worldwide release on December 14th.
I never thought I’d say this… but I vastly prefer the Versace collab. Not that Ms. Somerville didn’t do quite a nice job, it’s just… a bit tired looking. While the character of Lisbeth Salander might be edgy, this sartorial interpretation is less so. -RS (Image Courtesy PaulWilmot for H&M)
