It’s been tough to get excited about designer collaborations with retailers lately. There’s been something of a sluggish turnabout as creators fail to come up with pieces that are truly inspiring and exciting. But guess what? That’s not an issue with H&M’s latest 2019 collaboration, Giambattista Valli x H&M lineup.

The range might best be described as pure romance. Known for his elegant, dramatic, and highly feminine pieces, Valli brought his signature touch to the highly approachable H&M collection just in time for the holiday season.

The capsule collection is packed with show-stopping pieces in the veins you’d expect from Valli: fresh florals, lavish ruffles, brazen animal prints, sequins, studs, and lace. These are genuinely beautiful pieces that are sure to become instant favorites. Here are a few of the highlights.

Giambattista Valli x H&M Collaboration 2019

1. Tiered maxi dress

Garden party alert! Make like something out of the spring issue of Vogue and slip into this gorgeous tiered maxi dress. Adorned with a brilliant floral print, it’s the perfect addition to your warm-weather wardrobe.

2. Rhinestone sweatshirt

Never has a sweatshirt looked so glamorous. Available in cream and gray varieties, this eye-catching top puts a fresh spin on lounge wear. Whether you wear it out with joggers and chunky sneakers or add it to your home-for-the-holidays repertoire, you’re sure to feel just a little more chic.

3. Clutch bag

A pared back version of the highly glam, expensive hard-case evening bags made by high-end designers, this petite clutch bag is a sweet and sturdy choice for any formal affair. It’s adorned with “Love” in exquisite pearl lettering and includes a detachable snake chain strap.

4. Cashmere-blend scarf

It doesn’t get softer or more elegant than this! As colder weather approaches, you’ll find dozens of reasons to add this plush cashmere-blend scarf to your arsenal. It’s great with a coat and a sweater, but also dressy enough to add warmth and glamour to a sleek sheath dress.

5. Airy blouse

Balance your skinny jeans and edgy moto boots with some help from this flouncy, whimsical blouse. Featuring a concealed zipper and a heavy textural finish, it also adds a pop of vibrant color to monochromatic pantsuits.

6. Leather skirt

If you love a little leather, you’ll appreciate the edgy-meets-ladylike attention given to this skirt. Featuring a flattering A-line silhouette, it’s made with grained leather and features a thick satin waistband. Tuck in a slinky blouse and step into open-toe booties for a flawless look.
