Anticipation levels are already high for H&M’s next designer collaboration.
Frothy gowns, playful pleats and show stopping accessories are at the heart of the brand’s collaboration with Giambattista Valli, the Paris-based master of beauty and sophistication.
News of the partnership was revealed at the start of the summer at the amfAR gala in Cannes, where Giambattista Valli and H&M’s Creative Advisor Ann-Sofie Johansson walked the red carpet together with Kendall Jenner, Chris Lee (Li Yuchun), Chiara Ferragni, H.E.R., Bianca Brandolini d’Adda and Ross Lynch.
The stars were dressed in glamorous must-have pieces from a unique limited-edition pre-drop collection from the Giambattista Valli x H&M collaboration.
Born and raised in Rome, Giambattista Valli launched his namesake line in Paris in 2005. His universe now encompasses ready-to-wear, haute couture and accessories. The collaboration with H&M is the first of its kind for Valli and also marks Valli’s first foray into menswear.
Commenting on the project Valli said: “I am excited about this collaboration: H&M gives me the opportunity to bring my vision of style and my celebration of beauty to a wider audience. The goal is to share my love for beauty and to be able to be part of everyone’s “happy moments”, to help create love stories all around the world.”
Creative Advisor, H&M, Ann-Sofie Johansson said: “We are thrilled to collaborate with Giambattista Valli. He is the undisputed master of haute couture with a knack for the memorable silhouette. To be able to bring his signature styles to our customers is a dream come true. We can’t wait to see their reactions to this beautiful collection.”
The main Giambattista Valli x H&M collection launches worldwide on November 7, 2019 with prices ranging from £12.99 – £399.99.
