Gwyneth Paltrow And Michael Kors Become Design Partners
GWYNETH PALTROW is teaming up with Michael Korsto create a one-off Christmas collection for her website,Goop.com. The range was inspired by the actress’s personal wardrobe and her favourite pieces from Kors’s collections.
“Michael’s clothes are gorgeous, staple, American classics that never go out of style,” Paltrow said. “I thought it would be wonderful to reinvent some of my favourite vintage Michael Kors looks that I have kept for years, that I wear over and over.”
The collection will include ready-to-wear, such as capes and peacoats, as well as accessories from Kors’s mainline, selected by Paltrow. The actress and designer have known each other for nearly 20 years, and have long been discussing the possibility of a collaboration. Other labels to have teamed up with Paltrow for Goop include Matthew Williamson andStella McCartney.
“I have always been intrigued by the idea of someone who can juggle all the balls in the air and do it with great style, make it look easy, be smart and have a sense of humour,” Kors told WWD of Paltrow. “We always said, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if some time we could do something together, in whatever way.’ We started talking about the idea that when you buy something, you often don’t know that it’s going to turn out to be your favourite piece. Inevitably designers don’t make it again and, she said, ‘It could drive you crazy.'”
