“I’ve always liked H&M’s focus on fun and affordable fashion. I really loved the concept we collaborated on to explore the different emotions of women represented by the four elements – fire, water, earth and wind. It was a beautiful shoot on a tropical island. It felt more like making a video than a commercial.”- Beyoncé
In the campaign Beyoncé is wearing the key pieces from H&M you need for life in the sun this summer. There’s the perfect bodycon dress, as well as a flowing sun dress that makes a real statement. And of course there are the bikinis, especially the fringed bikini. What makes these pieces even more special is that Beyoncé herself had input in the designs, and they are full of her own personal style.” - Ann-Sofie Johansson, Head of Design at H&M
