Print ads and a television commercial for H&M's 2015 holiday campaign will feature pop star Katy Perry.
The 31-year-old recording artist, who is known for her playful style, will be seen dressed as a fairy before "conjuring to life a cast of characters, from life-sized gingerbread men, to oversized presents on roller skates, and giant teddy bears," a news release said.
Perry also penned the song "Every Day is a Holiday" for the commercial, which is scheduled to premiere Nov. 23.
"I had such a festive time shooting this larger-than-life holiday commercial with Jonas Akerlund, and all of the fun clothes, especially my favorite, the Elfie Selfie sweater. H&M has been a part of the evolution of my personal style since I was 13, when I would start to incorporate fun, affordable H&M pieces into my vintage wardrobe. I can't wait for you to give your wardrobe some sparkle with this magical holiday collection," Perry said in a statement.
"I love the mix of style and updated traditions in this year's holiday collection. These are pieces for pure pleasure, whether it's the perfect party dress for the best night out, or a cozy and fun sweater for relaxing with friends and family," added Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M's head of design.
H&M's holiday collection will be available in stores and online this month.
