In a celebration of a decade of style innovation, H&M Studio unveils its mesmerising Holiday Capsule collection that invites fashion enthusiasts to embark on a journey through the timeless realms of corsetry, lingerie, and refined tailoring. This collection, set to launch on December 7 in selected stores and online on Superbalist, marks a bold return to fashion's fundamentals.

H&M Studio Holiday Capsule

Inspired by the intricate construction of antique undergarments and the raw aesthetics of Brutalist architecture, the H&M Studio Holiday Capsule introduces a seductive era for evening wear. Ann-Sofie Johansson, Head of Design Womenswear and Creative Advisor at H&M, expresses the essence of the collection: "Timeless dressing and an enduring sense of sophistication define the H&M Studio Holiday Capsule."

This alluring collection weaves together graceful silhouettes crafted from sensual silk and lace, creating a soft-focus colour palette that seamlessly transitions from day to night. The marriage of megawatt dresses with sophisticated suiting encapsulates a modern take on evening wear, capturing the essence of the holiday season.

Key pieces that enchant in the H&M Studio Holiday Capsule include the voluminous tulle ball gown in dramatic red, the blush-pink lace-panelled evening dress, and the sparkling mesh mini dress with a peek-a-boo neckline. Lingerie details seamlessly integrate with tailoring, presenting mesh-trimmed black trousers coordinating with cropped corset tops and room-for-two blazers.

Accessories play a pivotal role, adding an edge to the collection with geometric jewellery and minimal strappy sandals. The poetic and sensual vibe of the collection is beautifully summarised by Kathrin Deutsch, Collection Designer at H&M Studio: "Poetic and sensual, this characterful collection balances feminine dresses in lace, tulle, and silk with more masculine oversized tailoring, for a modern evening wear formula."

As the collection unfolds, it also marks a significant milestone for H&M Studio, celebrating its 10th anniversary. Launched in 2013, H&M Studio has evolved into the brand's most directional and fashion-forward offering. The H&M Studio Holiday Capsule serves as a bridge to a new chapter for these limited-edition collections, expanding to include multiple releases per year and several drops each season.

In a world where fashion meets sustainability, sophistication meets sensuality, and tradition meets innovation, the H&M Studio Holiday Capsule stands as a testament to a decade of timeless style and the promise of exciting chapters yet to unfold. The collection will be available to shop exclusively on Superbalist.com.
