Gwyneth Paltrow has every reason in the world to say ‘my friends are better than yours!’ She and her designer bestie, Stella McCartney, are teaming up to create a clothing line!
Stella McCartney x Goop is a part of Paltrow’s e-commerce component that her lifestyle site, Goop, launched last September. Women’s Wear Daily is reporting full of investment pieces with prices starting at $795.
The capsule collection consists of a classic black blazer, charcoal gray knit jumpsuit, black jeans, and black wool trousers. McCartney’s new Beckett handbag will also be available in black, gray, and white.
“We sat down and talked about it and it was very considered,” McCartney indulged to WWD. “The outcome is designs that are very timeless… Gwyneth was a huge part of that. This is a big reflection of her life. The pieces are very subtle.”
“I tend to go for more classic pieces,” Paltrow went on. “I wanted to make things that you’d leave to your daughter. My audience loves an investment piece and nothing will last longer. We could have done some brand-new trend collection. For the first time, we wanted to work on something that was easy to understand.”
“When one of your best friends is a very successful artist and you love and admire her work, you want to support it at all [costs],” she continued. “I have this start-up, Goop, and I have a strong ide of what I want it to be. I went to Stella and asked if she would collaborate with me. She never had done collaboration like this before until I strong-armed her. She is the most insanely amazing designer.”
We can shop the collaboration between the BFFs when it launches on September 12th.
