H&M x The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

The best form of compliment for any foreign film is when Hollywood decides to make a version of it. In my opinion, the original film in the foreign language always pack a better punch. For this reason, I am reluctant to watch the Hollywood's remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

I have watched the original movie trilogy in Swedish, based on Steig Larsson's bestselling 'Millennium Series'. At his death in November 2004, Larsson left three unpublished novels that made up the trilogy.

Part 1 - The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Swedish: Man som hatar kvinnor (Men Who Hate Women)

Part 2 - The Girl Who Played With Fire
Swedish: Flickan som lekte med elden (The Girl Who Played with Fire)

Part 3 - The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest
Swedish: Luftslottet som sprangdes (The Grandeur Fantasy Blown Up)

The best fashion compliment a film can get is when H&M decides to launch a collection based on the main character of a film. In this case, the collection was inspired by Lisbeth Salander, the girl with the dragon tattoo, played by Swedish actor Noomi Rapace.

Trish Summerville is behind the costumes for David Fincher’s version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. To celebrate the movie, costume designer Trish Summerville has created a women’s collection for H&M, full of pieces inspired by the film’s anti-heroine, Lisbeth Salander. I think Trish looks like a fashionable version of Lisbeth.

The 30-piece collection has a dark urban feel that defines Lisbeth's character, with leather jackets and trousers, torn jeans and slouchy hoodies all in industrial shades of black, grey, worn white or dark red. The collection debuts exclusively at Colette in Paris on 28 November. The collection will be available from 17 December at H&M’s Divided department in Singapore.
