Many fashion trends have been influenced by clothes seen in popular films. But the latest fashion-inspired collection is from designer Trisha Summerville, who has created a line of quirky items, all inspired by the book - and soon to be released film - The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.


Trish Summerville, who has designed clothes for Christina Aguilera and the TV series, The Dark Path Chronicles, has teamed up with H&M for their next designer collaboration which is due out in December 2011. If you are shopping online, browsing sites such as ASOS or H&M while playing games of Cheeky Bingo, why not check out the sneak-peak photos of the new collection? Summerville is also desinging the costumes for the Hollywood remake of the film, which is due out in December 2011.

Summerville's new punk rock styled clothes, are based on the quirky, anti-social odd-ball character, Lisbeth Salander. We will soon see items such as motorcycle jackets, faux leather pants and studded boots on H&M shelves. This casual, punk look, reflects the character of Lisbeth perfectly, who simply flings on the first thing she sees in the wardrobe, but still manages to look cool.

The book is part of a trilogy by author, Stieg Larsson, who went on to write The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked A Hornet's Nest. His books, which are set in Sweden, tell the story of a highly intelligent woman, Lisbeth, who is considered by doctors as a psychopath due to her violent outbreaks and her bi-polar personality. She teams up with a journalist to uncover a murder which occurred more than 40 years ago. With his research skills and Lisbeth's photographic memory and computer hacking abilities, they spend months working together to track down the killer.

Summerville said: "In the film, her clothes are quite extreme. They're really worn down, they're dirty. So for us, it was taking that kind of concept and giving it more of a realistic fashion feel."

It only seems right that a Swedish retailer, such as H&M, should bring out this collection, since the books are set in Sweden. The collection will first be sold at the Paris boutique in November, before coming to 175 H&M locations all over the world from December 14. The film comes to theatres in late December.
