Did someone say prom season? H&M’s newest designer collaborator is Giambattista Valli, an Italian designer who is known for making giant confectioneries of tulle that are red-carpet hits. See Kacey Musgraves’s recent Oscars outfit, Lily Collins at the this year’s Met Gala, and Rihanna at the Grammys in 2015. And now, he’s making gowns for the masses. The limited-edition dresses are dropping this Saturday. I’m past my prom-going age, not so sadly, so I’m looking for an occasion to wear this.
If you want to know what the gowns will look like, we got a sneak peak at the Cannes amfAR Gala last night. Kendall Jenner, Chiara Ferragni, and Li Yuchun wore pieces from the collection. The limited-edition drop will be available at H&M stores and on the website on Saturday, with a larger collection on November 7.
And this is the first time Valli will be designing for men. Ross Lynch wore a polka-dot suit from the collection to the amfAR gala, but judging per Vogue, it will also include a shorts-suit and some more casual wear.
“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 said in a press conference. So, teens getting prom-posed to, mark your calendars for May 25.
