Eva Gabrielsson is looking more and more prescient in her bitter anticipation that Larsson’s legacy might be”sold like potatoes.” Expressing her angry concerns to one interviewer, she said, “I don’t want his name to be an industry or brand. The way things are going his name could end up on a bottle of beer, a coffee packet, or a car.”
None of those products are (yet) on the list, but a line of clothing has now come on the market: Swedish fashion retailer H&M says it will release a collection of clothes inspired by Lisbeth Salander. The fashion chain says the collection is designed by Trish Summerville, the designer who created Salander’s outfits in David Fincher’s upcoming U.S. film.
H&M said Wednesday the 30-piece collection has “the dark urban feel that defines” Salander’s character, with leather jackets and trousers, torn jeans and slouchy hoodies.
