Gird your loins: H&M's most glorious collaboration is coming. The retailer has teamed up with Italian-born, Paris-based designer Giambattista Valli on a new, limited-edition collection, and the fashion industry is collectively giddy with excitement. A limited amount of pieces will be available in stores and on H&M's website on May 25, but we'll have to wait until November 25 for the full collection to launch. In Cannes yesterday, none other than Kendall Jenner debuted one of the sure-to-be best sellers from the collab: a frothy tulle dress in hot pink.

"I am excited about this collaboration: H&M gives me the opportunity to bring my vision of style and my celebration of beauty to a wider audience," Valli said in a press release. "The goal is to share my love for beauty and to be able to be part of everyone’s 'happy moments' to help create love stories all around the world."

Added Kendall Jenner: "I'm so happy to be wearing one of the first pieces from the Giambattista Valli x H&M collaboration here at the amfAR gala," she said in a statement. "This dress is everything—gorgeous, dramatic and fiercely feminine—and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the collection will be like." Scroll down to preview the collection.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
