If you don’t live in Manhattan, Los Angeles, Chicago or San Francisco, then you might be a tad disappointed when the H&M Dragon Tattoo Collection hits select stores in those cities on December 14. The “dark, urban collection” is inspired by Lisbeth Salander, the anti-heroine from the highly-anticipated film adaptation to “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” H&M’s collaboration with costume designer Trish Summerville promises to feed accessible fashion addicts with edgy jackets, torn jeans, and hoodies colored in the deepest shades of black, white, grey and crimson. Lucky Manhattanites will get dibs on H&M’s pop-up store in the Meatpacking District (72 Gansevoort St) opening December 14th at noon.
