If you’ve read  The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo you may know that the tatted, anti-social, goth-punk rocker and hacker heroine known as  Lisbeth Salander, is many things. She’s a techno whiz but when it comes to fashion, Lisbeth ‘s style is quite elementary. But despite the obvious contradiction, Swedish bargain retailer H&M is releasing a capsule collection inspired by the late Stieg Larsson’s widely popular novel (15 million copies sold and counting) which has been turned into a feature film starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara.

Debuting in 180 H&M stores, the gritty 30-piece collection features hoodies, leather jackets, tribal earrings and motocross pants designed by the film’s costume designer Trish Summerville. “We put a lot of aged-in washes and finishes, which goes along the lines of the Salander character,” Trish told WWD. “It was taking that kind of concept and giving it more of a realistic fashion feel. “I wanted the collection to have the essence and strength of Salander, with a fashion edge, and I’m pleased with the result! Salander’s look is very real and very lived in, with pieces that her character has worn for a long time. My goal is for women to find pieces in it they love and then mix with their own wardrobe to create their own personal style.”

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo capsule collection hits stores on Dec. 14th just in time for the movie’s release a week later on Dec. 21st. H&M’s other anticipated collaboration with Versace launches on November 17th. Which collection will you buy?
