I had the pleasure of attending the Giambattista Valli x H&M runway show in Rome, and saw the full collection in person. The new Giambattista Valli x H&M collaboration offers endless styling inspiration. Mr Valli broke the rules and encouraged an independent free-spirited way of wearing the collection. Fashion, after all, is all about attitude. Here are some of my favourite styled looks:
Do wear sheer logo tights worn with a ballgown and open toe heels. It's an interesting pattern, texture and focal point.
The red showstopper dress is quintessential Valli. Dress it down with a pair of white sneakers, studded flatforms or Doc Martens, or layer a leather jacket on top.
A lesson in texture play. Pair furry textures with lace.
A way to update the 60s inspired shift dress is with a perfect bag and a modern boot.
Urban cool meets dapper elegance. Take your sporty hoodie to the next level by pairing it with this must-have brocade coat.
Couture meets street. Layer a luxe hoodie over a tulle gown. It's a fresh take on the boy-meets-girl look.
Do wear knee high socks with open toe heels. The brighter the sock, the better.
