Bringing Paris to Macy’s

Thursday, October 13, 2011


Another designer collaboration–this time for Macy’s.


After the success of the Karl Lagerfeld collabo, Macy’s has nabbed Giambattista Valli for a fourth designer collection for their impulse department. The renowned Parisian designer is bringing his keen eye for print and master tailoring skills to Macy’s, offering affordable luxury–and just in time for the holiday season.


On Tuesday, we got a sneak peek at the collection at Villa Pacri in the Meatpacking District. Though some pieces are better for parties and nights on the town, many of the designs are wearable for every day. The collection includes bold and colorful cocktail dresses, flirty skirts, sleek pants, lightweight jackets and feminine blouses.


Of his collection, Valli boasts, ‚ÄúThis collection is a passport into my world and a chance to experience the passion and romance of my house and Paris itself.” Luckily for us New Yorkers, our Parisian-chic wear can be found in the heart of Herald Square.


The collection will be available October 26th.
