I've lusted after many an H&M designer collab over the years, but the high-street stalwart just might have outdone itself this time around… I've been flipping back and forth through all of the product images that hit my inbox, feverishly trying to decide what to put on my shopping list ahead of the collection's November 7 launch, and I think I'm going to have to enlist your help here, readers.
The designer in question is Giambattista Valli, so you can only imagine how hard the decision-making process is going, especially given my maximalistic penchant for mock croc, ruffles (so many ruffles!), floral accents, and rhinestone-encrusted pumps that would quickly earn a prized place in Carrie Bradshaw's shoe-storage oven. Just ask our eternal style muse Kendall Jenner, who's fronting the campaign!
H&M Giambattista Valli launches November 7 at 10 a.m. EST online, and in select stores at 8 a.m. local time. Check hm.com to find a store near you.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Blazer ($199)
Cut to me currently arranging my November social calendar around the places I plan on wearing this very important blazer.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Dress ($249)
An absolute confection of a formal dress—like wearing an actual layer cake, only way less messy. Buy now and save for your next fancy wedding invite.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Boots ($399)
Proof that black boots don't have to be boring! Just ask Giambattista Valli, who has added some lace, a little extra height, and dainty bows.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Necklace ($80)
This necklace situation feels very J.Lo circa 2001, which is, of course, one of the best J.Lo style eras. (I mean, like it's possible to choose!)
H&M x Giambattista Valli Blouse ($129)
Like I said, RUFFLES. In red. This one's a no-brainer.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Dress ($299)
Minimalists, avert your eyes—everyone else, please form an orderly line and ready your credit cards.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Tights ($35)
Is there a cooler way to get into the logo trend? (Yes, this is a rhetorical question, but I'll still entertain your incredibly wrong arguments via DM.)
H&M x Giambattista Valli Leather Trousers ($299)
These might not be for the faint of heart, but you seem pretty bold, reader. Croc-embossed leather is having a major moment this season, and this is certainly one way to pull it off.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Tee ($35)
This logo tee is about to be all over Instagram. You've been advised—make sure to snag one before they're gone.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Dress ($549)
If it's good enough for Kendall, it's good enough for me. Got an event that calls for a statement-making dress? You know what to do…
H&M x Giambattista Valli Dress ($399)
The dress of my wildest dreams! At a price point that's a bit more down to earth.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Purse ($50)
You might own a croc-embossed bag already, but this heart shape? It totally justifies adding another purse into your collection.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Dress ($299)
Wait, another impossibly dreamy dress? This one's got fairytale princess vibes, yet it's still very wearable thanks to the grounding black color palette.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Jacket ($199)
I already own a few less ostentatious furry jackets, but I've made room in my closet for this super-glam-rock style that has party season written all over it.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Scarf ($70)
There are a lot of great scarves in this collab, but this floral pick really spoke to me. Who says florals belong to spring?
H&M x Giambattista Valli Sandals ($349)
Carrie Bradshaw, eat your heart out!
H&M x Giambattista Valli Minidress ($399)
Yes, some layering will be required if you live somewhere with actual seasons. Add fleece-lined black tights and your coat of choice.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Dress ($499)
Roll out the red carpet… This tiered dress is perfectly award-worthy.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Earrings ($60)
If there's a single pair of earrings that embodies F/W 19, it's these. No question.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Dress ($149)
In case sweeping, floor-length styles aren't quite your thing, the Italian designer has thankfully crafted an equally stunning minidress.

Sherpa seems to be covering everything this season, and for good reason.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Sweatshirt ($99)
Leave it to Giambattista Valli to take a plain white sweatshirt and give it a head-turning twist.

More croc-embossed leather at the ready, in case red-hot leather pants were a step too far outside of your sartorial comfort zone.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Blouse ($99)
Pair with flowy, wide-leg black pants to balance the delightful explosion of ruffles and pattern.
H&M x Giambattista Valli Coat ($349)
And now, the pièce de résistance! I'm pushing my plain black winter coat to the back of my closet and placing this baby front and center.
