Macy’s is on a roll

Exclusive: A First Look At Giambattista Valli X Macy’s

Macy’s is on a roll. Last month, the retail giant debuted collections by Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Dello Russo, and now, a covetable series of looks created by Giambattista Valli. Drawing on his experience as a world traveler, the Paris-based designer’s capsule collection for Macy’s Impulse offers a wardrobe for the chic jet-setter, at prices ($50 to $150) that don’t strain your wallet like a trip to Bali might. If you recall, earlier this month, the designer cited very similar inspirations at his ready-to-wear show in Paris. So you’ll find the Macy’s Valli girl is likely to cross paths with shoppers of his namesake line, equipped with safari-inspired animal prints and pink rosy florals. The pieces, like the flirty red dress, are individually injected with the same zest Valli is known for. Both Giambattista devotees and newcomers looking to get a taste of Valli’s signature flair will be pleased. The tan leopard-print pants and the jacket are both likely to be top sellers when the collection hits stores across the U.S. at the end of this month.
