In what's set to be one of the most exciting fashion team-ups yet, H&M has just announced its latest designer collaboration with Italian style superstar Giambattista Valli. The news was revealed at last night's amfAR Gala in Cannes where H&M's Ann-Sofie Johansson and Giambattista Valli walked the red carpet together with muses Kendall Jenner, Ross Lynch, Chiara Ferragni, Bianca Brandolini, H.E.R., and Chris Lee.

The collaboration is particularly interesting since its the first time that Valli has ever done menswear. Born and raised in Rome, Valli launched his eponymous brand in 2005. Through the years, he's become known for making ready-to-wear and haute couture for women, with tulle being his signature. With this collaboration, we get to see Valli's vision for menswear and it includes organza and pearls combined with traditional pieces.

“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 a part of everyone’s 'happy moments,' to help create love stories all around the world" says Valli.

Another point of interest is the fact that this is the first time that H&M is offering a pre-collection in its designer collaboration series. The pieces worn at the amfAR Gala will be available to shop in selected stores and on hm.com on May 25. In the Philippines, Giambattista Valli x H&M will also be available on hm.com on the same date. The limited pre-collection is a preview of what's to come when the full collection drops on November 7, 2019.

Twenty-three-year-old Lynch, Valli's muse for the men's pieces, currently stars in Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Of the collection, the actor says, “I am super excited to be wearing the first ever Valli menswear pieces in this Giambattista Valli x H&M collaboration. I haven’t seen it all, but what I have seen I love.”
