Anyone who’s ever read the Millenium trilogy (aka The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books) is entranced by the story’s heroine, Lisbeth Salander. She’s the badass most women wish they had the cajones to be. She’s strong, fierce, and doesn’t take no for an answer.
But if you’re having a hard time inheriting her strong attitude, it’s okay. Now you can wear her clothes. Sort of.
According to this article by the L.A. Times, H&M is launching a new line of clothing next month, inspired by the wardrobe of Lisbeth Salander. The trendy international clothing store was established in Sweden, where the Millenium series and its author Stieg Larsson are from. The chain plans to release the Salander line December 14th, a week before the American version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is due to come out in theaters.
Lisbeth Salander is described as a punk, gothic character, and it seems that’s what shoppers can expect from the line — lots of leather, pleather, and deep, muted colors.
Not only is it an amazing marketing strategy for the new movie, but it’s also the perfect kind of clothing for winter. Not to mention, it fits in seamlessly with what H&M already offers. I’m definitely checking out the new line. Will you?
