The two design houses have teamed up to create a capsule collection of denim that is sure to reach cult status. Taking inspiration from Giambattista Valli's Spring/Summer '14 couture collection and boasting 7 For All Mankind's perfect fits, the collection includes of-the-moment flares, high-waisted skinny jeans and neon brights.

"Denim fascinates me, as I am naturally drawn to exploring new grounds," says Giambattista Valli. "I used denim as a canvas onto which project my vision, thinking of a decidedly young, multicultural clientele of glamorous Valli girls. I worked on both shapes and fabrics, delivering jeans with a strong identity, quite unique for cut and treatment".

The first drop, which includes matte-coated red denim high-waist skinnies and animal prints, is available this week; the second delivery, including denim embellished with Sangallo lace, is expected in June.  The range is priced from $425 to $490; head to  7forallmankind.com.au or visit their store at Emporium Melbourne, 287 Lonsdale St, Melbourne.
