H&M Unveil Collection Inspired By Lisbeth Salander

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘s Lisbeth Salander is the Jane Eyre of the 21st Century. I don’t think that’s a stretch. Just take a look at their similarities for a moment (with no spoilers, I promise). Both are unconventional heroines. Both have troubled pasts. At a young age both were abused by family members (no spoilers, don’t worry). Both are strong, independent women with trust issues…

Maybe Lisbeth Salander has a few more years to put in before she reaches Jane’s legend-status on the hierarchy of Iconic Female Literary Characters, but there’s already evidence of her growing relevance in pop-culture.

Case in point: H&M have unveiled a 30-piece capsule collection inspired by the character and designed by Trish Summerville – the costume designer for the forthcoming film adaptation helmed by David Fincher. You can take a look at ‘The Dragon Tattoo’ collection in the clip below, which includes an interview with Summerville.

The collection will be available from December 14 in over 100 H&M stores as well as online. Via Styleite
