Gap teams up with ValentinoThursday, 09 September 2010
Gap have announced today that their next designer collaboration will be with Valentino.
A capsule womenswear collection designed by Valentino Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli will go on sale at the opening of a new Gap flagship store in Milan in late November.
As the Guardian broadsheet aptly queried, "what do you get if you cross Valentino - ivory duchesse satin cocktail suits and swishy floorlength red chiffon - with perfect Ts and black trousers?" Chiuri and Piccioli stated: "Valentino and Gap synthesise the current trend of combining luxury with basics."
Whatever the result, we expect at the very least a collection of red resort pieces for the holiday season.
