Long-time friends Gwyneth Paltrow and Valentino co-Creative Directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, have collaborated on a special capsule collection called ‘Wonder Woman Valentino’, which includes a starry voluminous tulle gown, studded sneakers, and more. This marks the first time the storied Italian fashion house has consciously coupled with a celebrity for a collection. “The idea came to us while we were working on the Mirabilia Romae Couture show in July. Gwyneth came to Rome and spoke to us about doing something together for Goop, and because she is a great friend who we admire and respect, we instantly decided to support her in this special project”, say Chiuri and Piccioli.
A selection of the ‘Wonder Woman Valentino’ capsule collection is now on sale at the Goop pop-up shop in New York City, which will run from November 23rd to December 24th. Meanwhile, the rest of the world will have to patiently wait for the entire collection to roll out in Valentino boutiques worldwide from April 2016.
