BEYONCÉ @ Mrs. Carter in H&M Summer Collection

H&M new summer campaign teamed up with Beyonce in fashion brand's television and print ads featuring pieces from their summer collection. The pring and outdoor billboards introduce "Beyonce as Mrs. Carter in H&M", the idea that all women can be all things: strong, vulnerable, sensual, maternal, fun, flirtatious.  “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,” says Beyoncé.
“H&M’s summer campaign starring Beyoncé is an epic fantasy, with glamour, drama and also a sense of paradise. It was amazing to watch her on the shoot make it all look effortless – a quality that makes her such an icon for women around the world. The campaign is the essence of Beyoncé, and also the essence of  H&M this summer,” says Donald Schneider, Creative Director, H&M. “In the campaign Beyoncé is wearing the key pieces from H&M you need for life in the sun this summer,”  says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Head of Design, H&M. “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 into the design, and they are full of  her own personal style.”
The campaign images were shot in Nassau in the Bahamas by photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and  Vinoodh Matadin, while the commercial was directed by Jonas Åkerlund. The commercial highlights the  opposing nature of the four basic elements and will be available to view online in its entirety, with edited  versions for TV. The commercial also features a new song from Beyoncé, Standing On The Sun, which will  be available worldwide online and hm.com beginning May.  Check out the fun fill making of video!
