STOCKHOLM (AP) — Swedish fashion retailer H&M says it will release a collection of clothes inspired by the rebellious character Lisbeth Salander in Stieg Larsson’s best-selling crime novel “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”
The fashion chain says the collection is designed by designer Trish Summerville, who created Salander’s outfits in David Fincher’s upcoming U.S. film versions of Larsson’s three-book crime series.
H&M said Wednesday the 30-piece collection has “the dark urban feel that defines” Salander’s character, with leather jackets and trousers, torn jeans and slouchy hoodies.
Actress Rooney Mara plays the tormented tattooed computer hacker in the U.S. film, which is due out on Dec. 21.
The H&M collection will be available in stores from Dec. 14.
