An H&M and Giambattista Valli Collab Is Happening—and You’ll Be Able to Shop the Collection ASAP
If you thought Cannes couldn't get any more glamorous, well, you must have forgotten about the annual amfAR Gala. This year, the black-tie bash is even more thrilling than ever, thanks to a special announcement from Giambattista Valli. The over-the-top (but in the best possible way) designer announced his forthcoming collaboration with H&M…at the event.
The Swedish fast-fashion retailer has previously collaborated with other high-fashion names, including Isabel Marant, Alexander Wang, Balmain and Moschino. And while they typically announce their newest collaboration in the spring and make shoppers wait until the fall to get their hands on the limited-edition pieces, fans of Giambattista Valli will be happy to hear that this partnership is a little different.
In fact, a preview of the collection will be available in select H&M stores and online this Saturday, Vogue reports. (But hurry—these stunning pieces won't last long.) The rest of the collection is slated to drop on November 7.
“Giambattista is really a master when it comes to beauty and glamour and sophistication, we’re really happy to be working with him,” said Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s Creative Advisor. “We always want to have different takes on the collaborations. This is different compared to Moschino last year. It’s the first time we’re working with someone doing couture.”
The accessible high-fashion collection will feature many takes on Valli's signature tulle dresses (beloved by Rhianna and Jennifer Lopez) and range in price from $18 to $649.
“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," Valli said. "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.”
Guess we know we'll be shopping for this weekend.
