Giambattista Valli Collaborates with H&M

H&M’s next designer collaboration is with Giambattista Valli, the Paris-based master of beauty and sophistication. The news was revealed at tonight’s amfAR gala in Cannes where Giambattista Valli and H&M’s Creative Advisor Ann-Sofie Johansson walked the red carpet together with Kendall Jenner, Chiara Ferragni, Ross Lynch, H.E.R., Chris Lee (Li Yuchun), and Bianca Brandolini D’Adda. The stars dressed in glamorous must-have pieces from a unique limited-edition pre-drop collection from the Giambattista Valli x H&M collaboration.

For the first time fashion fans can enjoy the collaboration immediately (well, almost!), as the beautiful pieces worn on the red carpet will be available in select stores and on hm.com beginning May 25th. The main Giambattista Valli x H&M collection will launch globally on November 7th.
