The Giambattista Valli x H&M Collection and How Much You Can Buy Each Piece in the Philippines
This year's H&M designer collaboration is sure to bring the tulle. The fast-fashion retailer is teaming up with couturier Giambattista Valli for its annual high-low offering, which means we can expect a lot of dreamy, frothy, princess-worthy pieces from this capsule.
WHEN YOU CAN SHOP THE COLLECTION
Unlike H&M's previous designer collabs that were released in the fall, the Valli capsule will have an early "pre-drop" on May 25 with nine looks in select stores and online. Shop the pre-collection on H&M's Philippine website. The entire range will launch on November 7.
If this collection is anything like its predecessors, it's sure to sell out instantly.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Valli was born in Rome but his eponymous brand, which he launched in 2005, is based in Paris. He moved to the French capital "because I was dreaming of building up a proper haute couture maison," he says in a video promoting the H&M collaboration.
"Couture is the art of making beautiful fabrics and experimenting," he adds. "It's the freedom of bringing like, a dream into a reality. I'm totally excited to see what's going to happen with this collaboration and all the love stories that are going to start around the world."
His imprint may best be known by decadent layers of tulle (often pink), an extravagant romantic flair, and big, billowy silhouettes.
H&M is "thrilled" to collaborate with the designer, the company's creative advisor, Ann-Sofie Johansson, said in a press release. "He is the undisputed master of haute couture with a knack for the memorable silhouette. To be able to bring his signature styles to our customers is a dream come true."
Valli takes a bow with a model after his Fall 2015 Couture show in Paris in July 2015.
FAMOUS RED CARPET MOMENTS
We've seen a number of stellar Giambattista numbers on the red carpet in recent years, including this month's camp-themed Met Gala. Emma Roberts, Lily Collins, and Lana Condor all wore lavish gowns by the designer.

Rihanna has also proven to be a fan of the brand, famously wearing some of its pink designs to the 2015 Grammy Awards and during her 2017 Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets film press tour.
