Elin Kling, the Swedish style consultant and blogger, is collaborating with Hennes & Mauritz over an exclusive collection, to be sold in Sweden only.
   Ms Kling’s collection will be launched on February 3 and will be sold in 10 stores in Stockholm, Göteborg, Malmö, and Uppsala. Ten per cent of each sale will be donated to UNICEF.
   Hennes & Mauritz marketing manager Sofia Jegerborn says that Kling, whose Style by Kling blog is well trafficked in Sweden, appeals to a fashion-conscious target audience.
   Sweden has generally been advanced in the online sphere, and the Kling collaboration is believed to be the first between a retailer of H&M’s scale and a blogger, highlighting the blogosphere’s influence in modern fashion trends.
   The collection consists of nine pieces and two accessories, in a minimalist style with Bohemian influences. The leather jacket Kling offers has a jagged edge, while the trousers appear raw, though overall the designs have a simple sculpture to them.
   Kling says, ‘It feels incredibly flattering and fun to be the first to do this kind of cooperation with H&M. It has been very inspiring to work so closely with the H&M design team and I’m very happy with the results.’
   She says the raw and Bohemian elements reflect her style well.
   Kling is not unknown to H&M. In April, she commented on the autumn–winter 2010 collection for the Swedish retailer, talking about whether the items were on-trend.
   Stores carrying the range are, in Stockholm: Hamngatan 22, Drottninggatan 56, Sergelgatan 1, Götgatan 36, Kista Galleria; in Göteborg: Nordstan, Kompassen; in Malmö: Gustav Adolfs Torg 2, Södra Förstadsgatan 20; and in Uppsala: Svartbäcksgatan 4.
