H&M Designed Custom Looks Inspired by 19th century for Met Gala

1 min read

H&M designed custom looks for actor Laura Harrier and designer Victor Glemaud for the 2022 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Benefit. The looks, designed by H&M’s in-house design team, are inspired by this year’s exhibition theme, “In America: An Anthology of Fashion”, which explores the sartorial narratives that chart the evolution of American style paying homage to America’s Gilded Age – the 19th to mid-late 20th century. For each look, H&M’s designers pulled inspiration from the evolution of American style and designs of this era, focusing on the grandiose nature of the time.

“It has been a pleasure working on these pieces for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Benefit. We were influenced by the Gilded Age while designing these two custom looks, really drawing on styles in the United States from the 19th and 20th centuries. Both designs have very dramatic and glamorous details, really highlighting the opulence of the Gilded Age,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M.
