Valentino & Goop Team Up On Wonder Woman-Themed Collaboration — PHOTOS
Are Goop, Valentino, and Wonder Woman three things you ever expected to hear in the same sentence? Well, thanks to Goop's pop-up shop in New York City, it will be quite the collaboration to behold. The Valentino-designed capsule collection includes everything from voluminous gold star-printed tulle dresses to eagle-bedazzled jean jackets to flirty rompers that fall somewhere in between — and it's altogether quite the sight for sore eyes. Though, the hefty price tags, which range from the mid thousands to the low ten-thousands, will likely have the opposite effect.
According to WWD, Goop x Valentino will have 24 items in the collection, which will actually serve as something of a sneak preview to a larger Wonder Woman Valentino roll out to take place later this year. For her part, Goop helms-woman Gwyneth Paltrow says she was drawn to the Wonder Woman theme in part because of all of the expectations women face — she told The New York Times, "To me, it’s a fantastic and resonant idea... because everybody is working, having kids, trying not to miss a soccer game while at the same time being on a conference call. The modern woman is a wonder woman."
Her collaborators on the project, Valentino co-creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli seem to feel similarly — as Chiuri said to WWD, "All women are in some way Wonder Woman because they have to think about the job, about the kids, about the husband." She also noted that this is Valentino's first time collaborating with a celebrity — though she did also bring up Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson's surprise appearance at Valentino's showing during Paris Fashion Week.
Regardless of how you happen to feel about Paltrow/Goop, I think we can all agree that Valentino and Wonder Women make for a kick-ass combination.
The pop-up shop, which will be located Time Warner Center, will be open from November 23rd until December 24th —perfectly timed for the holidays!
