Trish Summerville to design The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo collection

Trish Summerville is behind the costumes for one of the year's most eagerly awaited films, David Fincher's version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. To celebrate, 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.

The 30-piece collection has the dark urban feel that defines her 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 debut exclusively at the boutique Colette in Paris on November 28, with its own dedicated in-store area. The collection will be available from December 14 in Divided departments in around 180 H&M stores worldwide, as well as online.

“Salander's look is very real and very lived in, with pieces that her character has worn for a long time, like her jackets that act as her armour to shield her from the world. I wanted the collection to have the essence and strength of Salander, with a fashion edge, and I'm pleased with the result! My goal is for women to find pieces in it that they love and then mix them with their own wardrobe to create their own personal style,” says Trish Summerville, Costume Designer for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

“I love this collection and what we've achieved with Trish. She has such an amazing eye, is so specific and has such a strong vision. The clothes are all about the attitude - they have a toughness to them but they are also really flattering. The collection is so much more than costume - it's a fashion statement, it's modern, and it's right for now,” says Anna Norling, Designer for Divided at Hennes & Mauritz AB (H&M).

Salander has an iconic style: biker leathers, battered jeans and hoodies as seen in Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy. This Christmas sees the release of the English language film version of the trilogy's first book, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, directed by David Fincher.

Fincher called on noted costume designer Trish Summerville to encapsulate Salander's look, a re-imagined take on urban, grit and street fashion that Trish has made her own, thanks to her work on numerous movies as well as styling for musicians and actors. Trish now brings the inspiration for this look to H&M, with the style which will define the streets this winter.

Salander's look is all about individuality as well as survival, and Trish's collaboration with H&M Divided reflects her spirit. Leather racing jackets are neat, nipped and ready to protect; a hooded wool coat has a diagonal zip that wraps across the body; cardigans are draped at the front to provide comfort out in the city; trousers have a tight fit, either in functional leather or slashed denim, while a denim mini is rough cut as if by hand.

Zip-up hoodies are a crucial part of the mix, while T-shirts bring a rare splash of colour with a hand-painted flag, or scrolled lettering. Accessories are vital to the look, whether it be a knit snood, a battered backpack or a tribal earring. Boots finish off the style, whether they be high-top sneakers, an urban platform wedge, or some perfectly pre-worn leather boots.
