Famed for his exquisite touch to womenswear (his whimsical tulle ballgowns are the stuff of legend), the Giambattista Valli X H&M collaboration also marks Valli’s very first go at menswear.
“I am excited about this collaboration,” Giambattista Valli commented on the 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.”
