Creative, cool and couture-like. Welcome to the exciting world of the Paris-based master of beauty and sophistication. @giambattistavalliparis is this year’s designer collaboration! @hm #Project? On 25 May, we will release a pre-drop from @giambattistavalliparis x @hm with a limited edition of nine looks, as well as a few accessories, in selected stores and online. The main collection will launch on 7 November 2019.
While it’s customary to be teased by social media images and a national campaign for months prior to the launch, one of the collection gowns has already graced the amfAR gala red carpet in Cannes today worn by Kendall Jenner. Yes, paid to wear the dress but how does the mod really feel? “This dress is everything — gorgeous, dramatic and fiercely feminine”, said Jenner on the collaboration.
Giambattista Valli also spoke of the partnership, stating “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.”
A limited “pre-collection” of the Giambattista Valli x H&M collaboration will be available in 12 select H&M stores around the world and on HM.com beginning tomorrow and the full collection will launch globally on Nov. 7.
