NEW YORK, March 10, 2022 -- H&M is excited to introduce H&M Studio's "Press Play" collection featuring a high-energy homage to mood-enhancing fashion. Inspired by musical Gen-Z muses with exhilarating style and glowing personalities, the S/S 2022 collection draws on the eccentric fashion of the 1980s and 1990s. A daring mix-and-match mentality fuels the collection with a potent color palette and an electrifying fusion of prints and statement accessories. The H&M Studio SS 2022 collection will be available in the U.S. at the H&M Fifth Avenue flagship and beginning March 10.

Key pieces in the collection include avant-garde takes on laced-up denim, oversized suiting, lime green satin-coordinated sets, and a versatile leopard print swimsuit. A studded denim mini skirt, ruffle-adorned mesh top, and rhinestone-trimmed little black dress are inspired by the late 1990s style. Pop Art-inspired lips by Berlin-based illustrator, Stefan Fähler, are featured on an organic cotton T-shirt. Accessories include strong statement pieces with screen-green snake earrings and chain-link necklaces. Studded platform clogs and red Western boots are key footwear styles in the collection.

In line with H&M's sustainability goals, every item in the collection is made from sustainably sourced materials, including recycled polyester, recycled polyamide, and recycled wool.

"There's a new mood of exuberance in the air, making us all want to dress up in fabulous clothes again. It's reminiscent of the va-va-voom spirit that defined fashion in the 1980s up to the early 2000s. For the S/S 2022 collection, we wanted to bring powerful, big-personality fashion back into the spotlight, offering versatile pieces that will inspire joy," says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M.

"For S/S 2022, we had boundary-breaking musical muses on the mood board. We were inspired by their commitment to swerving clichés and expectations, both in their clothes and attitudes. The collection is all about no-holds-barred fun, intended to help our customers build their optimistic new look," says Linda Wikell, Concept Designer for H&M Studio.
