The limited-edition Giambattista Valli for Macy's collection includes cocktail dresses, skirts, blouses, light jackets, edgy pants, and graphic tees, all of which stick to a mainly red and black palette, with touches of gold, gray, and fuchsia. Alongside bold prints and color, Valli worked with feminine fabrics, lace, tweed, brocade, faux fur, and point d’esprit tulle.
The collection bows Oct. 26 both in 225 Macy's stores and on the retailer's website, and runs $50 to $150.
Already, Macy's has designers lined up for next Spring, according to Martine Reardon, EVP of marketing and advertising: “Look for us to be doing new things in the spring. We’re looking at other apparel categories. We’re also looking at shoes, handbags and jewelry. Anything is possible for the future.”
