Giambattista Valli has mastered the art of excess. The fashion darling is known for his delectably over-the-top, jaw-dropping designs that have been worn by Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya, Rihanna, and other A-listers. But thanks to Valli’s new collaboration with H&M, we can all live out our own glamorous, Disney princess fairytale IRL.
Dubbed “Project Love,” Valli designed an assortment of limited-edition gowns and accessories for the ladies and tailored pieces for the guys, and recruited his muses, singer H.E.R., Kendall Jenner, Chris Lee, Chiara Ferragni, Bianca Brandolini, and Ross Lynch, to model the first round of styles in the collection.
H.E.R debuted The Dream Dress, a white gown made with layers of tulle and a sheer bustier.
Jenner went full-on dramatic in The Neon Signature hot pink strapless tulle multi-tiered gown, which she described as “gorgeous, dramatic and fiercely feminine,” (and is similar to the look Jennifer Lopez wore to her Second Act premiere in New York.)
But my personal fave? Chris Lee’s powder pink high-low dress with a plunging neckline and elaborate tulle shoulders.
“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 in a press release. “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.”
Priced between $18 and $650, the Giambattista Valli x H&M collection will launch with an early drop expected to arrive in H&M stores on Saturday, May 25 before the full collection releases later in November. You can shop the full range when it drops on hm.com.
