Just in time for Halloween and tailor-made for us non-girly girls, Swedish retailer H&M is launching a line of clothing and accessories inspired by the newly remade The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo movie, which is based on Stieg Larssonâ€™s bestselling book of the same name.
Costume designer Trish Summerville (from the remake, not the original made waaaay back in 2009) designed the line for H&M in the hopes that every girl will want to look like gothy anti-social Asperger-burdened computer hacker and main character, Lisbeth Salander (portrayed in the upcoming film by Rooney Mara).
While thatâ€™s not too much of a stretch for those of us whose wardrobe is already comprised mainly of un-pressed black on black, Summerville has dressed up Salanderâ€™s threads â€“ everything from tribal style earrings to purposely beat-up jeans and hoodies menacing enough to inspire a stop-n-frisk on the subway – to make them more trend-friendly and less like my overflowing hamper (and hopefully will smell better). I just hope the trend doesnâ€™t spread to the hairstyling world; I wouldn’t want to be too trendy.
The line is set to debut in select H&M stores on December 14th and the remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo will hit theaters on December 21st.
