With the recent success of Gwyneth Paltrow’s online lifestyle empire, Goop, the actress has decided to expand her talents to fashion. As Paltrow descends into the fashion industry, she is definitely in good hands, for her partnership is with legendary fashion house Valentino. Paltrow has been longtime friends with creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli since her time starring in Shakespeare in Love. Together, they have collaborated in a 25-piece capsule collection to be sold on Paltrow’s website and in a pop-up shop in the Time Warner Center.
Drawing inspiration from Wonder Woman, the design team and Paltrow have created an opportunity for all involved to move out of their comfort zones. Paltrow was interested in the retail landscape and reached out to Valentino over social media to establish the partnership. The line, which ranges from accessories to shoes to clothes, the designers were able to expand past their romantic, delicate aesthetic the brand is known for and evolve into something a bit more edgy. This capsule collection was launched on Nov. 23 and is available now.
