Bright, shiny, optimistic: Introducing “Neo Real”, H&M Studio’s autumn proposition.
Inspired by fashion’s Space Age and modern missions to Mars, the A/W22 collection blurs the lines between reality and fantasy. With a bold colour palette and streamlined silhouettes, gravity-defying fabrics and cutting-edge accessories, the collection offers a futuristic take on minimalism. The H&M Studio A/W22 collection will be available in selected stores and at from October 13.

Key pieces come laden with attitude and ready for adventure. A cocooning fuchsia anorak, a strong-shouldered chocolate double-breasted overcoat and an electric-turquoise maxi fleece offer eye-catching takes on cold-weather classics. A high-fashion spin on the three-piece suit – oversized blazer meets flared pants and an endlessly versatile tailored skirt – is a modern answer to the workwear dilemma. A ruffled silver sequin dress and high-shine metallic co-ordinating shirt and trousers promise star power come cocktail hour. And in accessories, sparkling chocolate-brown thigh-high boots, a hot-pink padded clutch bag, Sci-Fi sunglasses, and a braided rhinestone collar necklace are conversation pieces with the ability to transform a look. In line with H&M’s sustainability goals, every item in the collection is made from more sustainably sourced materials including Tencel™, recycled polyester, recycled wool and recycled brass. 

“How to dress for the future? That was the question the H&M Studio team was asking for autumn, as we discussed mankind’s inspiring missions to space. We came up with sharp, minimalist silhouettes that feel confidence-boosting thanks to bold, brave shots of colour – we wanted our customers to dare to dream,”

Ann-Sofie Johansson, creative advisor at H&M.

“With a moodboard filled with images of space, the design team thought about what to take on an intergalactic trip. We decided on a mix of practical pieces mixed with fabulous items. The silver co-ordinating set is my favourite look, but I’d wear the silver trousers with the padded grey T-shirt and the rhinestone necklace – it’s the perfect alternative to a party dress,”

Linda Wikell, concept designer for H&M Studio.
