Latest H&M designer collaboration is with the incredible couturier Giambattista Valli – the master of frothy gowns with extravagant trains and exquisite cocktail dresses.

It will be available in 12 select H&M stores and hm.com from Saturday May 25 (the first time the collaboration has dropped almost immediately after the announcement) before the full collection hits stores and online on November 7.

“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,” Valli enthused.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Giambattista Valli. He is the undisputed master of haute couture with a knack for the memorable silhouette,” Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M, added. “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.”

There is an obvious couture flair to each one of Valli’s pieces, and this collection is no different. I foresee it being the go to section for formal evening affairs, weddings, parties and Italian streets.

Here are few key looks from the 12-piece drop coming to stores tomorrow.
