The Girl with the H&M Tattoo
Oct 26, 2011 - by Lester Brathwaite
Everyone's mad about Mara! Rooney Mara, the star of the American remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, is everywhere these days. Having already landed a Vogue cover -- and a pretty good one at that -- now H&M is creating a capsule collection based on her Dragon Tattoo character, Lisbeth Salander.
Citing the film's Swedish backdrop, the Swedish retailer jumped at the chance to collaborate with the film's costume designer, Trish Summerville. The result is lots of leather in jackets and boots, hoodies, tribal earrings, backpacks, tattered jeans and the always welcome knitted snood.
"We took her [Salander's] basic pieces that we used throughout the film and did a little more fashionable version for H&M," Summerville says of the line, which goes on sale at 180 H&M stores worldwide December 14th. Just in time for the film's premiere on December 26th. [Telegraph]
