Inspired by fearless scream queens, film noir heroines and the dramatic aesthetics of horror movies, H&M Studio A/W 23 is a quest of finding beauty in darkness this season. Glamour accompanies style and suspense to offer wearable pieces that are designed to thrill. 

H&M Studio AW23

The collection features an achromatic palette enlivened by hints of gold, lilac and turquoise. A dark femininity and reveals itself on powerful and sharp silhouettes softened by pleated bell sleeves, oversized statement collars, Gothic lace and ethereal tulle.

“This season celebrates ten years of H&M Studio, our most directional and fashion-fluent concept, and there are so many special pieces to choose from,” reads the brand’s magazine. Among the gasp-worthy garments are sensibly sculpted blazers, an oversized rhinestone-dusted denim jacket and coordinating extra-wide jeans, a razor-sharp tailored wool coat with strong shoulders and a nipped-in waist, a slinky sparkling mesh dress with a daring centre slit, and a luxe leather maxi skirt and matching zip-up jacket.

The accessories are just as compelling. Punctuating the collection are extra-large statement earrings, an eye-catching glass ring and delicate necklaces. Elbow-length gloves, knee-high square-toe boots and a new version of the cult-favourite padded cushion bag from the H&M Studio archives all come in voluptuous black leather. 

It’s a terrific selection featuring durable, high-quality fabrics and more sustainably sourced materials, such as recycled polyester, Tencel, chrome-free leather and post-consumer recycled brass, zinc and steel, with each piece carefully developed at H&M’s Stockholm atelier to be worn and loved for years.
