Giambattista Valli for Macy's
Macy’s continues to up the fashion quotient in its Impulse contemporary department with a new designer collaboration with Giambattista Valli, according to sources. The one-off collection is part of a four-designer initiative to bring more fashion excitement and younger customers to the Impulse department, which sells brands like BCBG Max Azria, Free People and Kensie, said sources.

Valli’s collection is slated to be in stores in November, following on the heels of Karl Lagerfeld’s designs for Impulse, which will be at 250 Macy’s stores and on Macys.com in September. The program kicked off with two British designers, Kinder Aggugini in February followed by Matthew Williamson in April. As for Valli’s involvement, a representative for Macy’s said, “We have not announced the next designer and do not comment on speculation.” (wwd)

the mauve strapless ruffled belted dress definitely looks red carpet worthy.

Do you know anything about the prices, Lucy?. I've been hardly impressed by collaborations this year and the only thing I have ever liked from Giambattista Valli were the dresses from S/S 10:

The fact that he recreated it in a street-friendly version, which actually looks better than the original, gets me so excited ... I want it, whatever it takes, I only hope the prices are not too silly for Macy's.

i saw a few pieces of the collection in stores today.
my macy's had some GV on mannequins behind a velvet rope with a big coming soon sign. of course the linoleum around the mannequins was cracked and broken....

the dress that mulletproof likes is not sheer. the grosgrain ribbon band around it looked rather puckered.

Pradable, you need to list a source for every image you post here at TFS. it is part of our Community Rules.

Street_a_Licious, yes, all the pieces i saw were synthetics.

I'd pick up a few pieces, but my instincts tell me the quality is not going to be impressive. There is only so many miracles you can pull out for things to RETAIL at $100.

this dress worn by diane kruger is very similar to the dress that sasha wears in the ads for giambattista for macys. (imnotobsessed)
