Well known for his dark, stylistic thrillers, David Fincher, the American film director behind award winning movies such as Fight Club, Seven, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, presents his take on 2011’s much anticipated thriller – The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
Based of Stieg Larsson’s novel of the same name, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is part of the trilogy – The Millenium. Embodying America’s dark urban mystery, film’s anti-heroine, Lisbeth Salander, exudes individuality and survival. Evoking a darker sense of tough feminism, Salander’s iconic style of biker leathers, battered jeans and hoodies as seen in Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy has been brought to life by costume designer Trish Summerville.
A brooding mixture of punk, grunge and metal, Trish encapsulate Salander’s look of a re-imagined take on urban, grit and street fashion in a collaboration with everybody’s favourite high street fashion chain, H&M. WIth a style which will set a new tone for the streets this winter, Trish’s collection for H&M pays homage to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo through a 30-piece collection of dark urban feel that defines Salander’s character.
Think leather jackets and trousers, torn jeans and slouchy hoodies all in industrial shades of black, grey, worn white or dark red. The collection gives a new take to feminism, and a new edge to street wear. “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,” says Trish.
The clothes are all about the attitude – they have a toughness in them yet are also flattering. Aimed to carry the essence and strength of Salander, paired with a fashion edge, Trish’s collection with H&M consists of iconic pieces such as Leather racing jackets, tight-fitting, yet functional leather and slashed denim, slouchy hoodies and t-shirts, and not to mention statement accessories to complete the look.
The collection debuts exclusively at Colette in Paris on November 28, and will be available from December 17 at H&M’s Divided department in Singapore. It’s time to flaunt the attitude this season, besides, didn’t they say the good ones always end up last?
