Calling all fashionistas and uber chic-geeks! Get your wallets out, because high-end designer Valentino and actress Gwyneth Paltrow are teaming up to give the most iconic superheroine a makeover. Well, not quite. But they are collaborating on a stylish collection based on the Amazonian princess.
The collection, Valentino x Goop "Wonder Woman Valentino," marks the first time the designer and A-lister have worked together or that either has dabbled in anything genre-related. So, what can we expect from the duo? According to Valentino creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, "Our idea was to do something some that can play with fashion and pieces that are a little punk and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll in attitude. It helps women mix together things that can be fine and fun." They also recruited Roman street artist Solo, whose work typically depicts comic-book characters, to help design the pieces.
According to WWD, the collection will consist of 24 pieces, mixed of clothing and accessories. Considering the pedigree of the names involved, you can be sure of two things: The pieces will be amazing and expensive. The tulle dress pictured retails for $8,900, and the studded leather jacket with WW's falcon motiff is priced at $6,950. I'm assuming that thump I just heard was your jaw hitting the floor.
For those of you fortunate enough to scoff at those price tags, the collection will be exclusively available on Goop.com and Goop Mrkt's holiday pop-up shop in NYC's Time Warner Center from Nov. 23-Dec. 24. And if you're feeling super generous this holiday season, I'll take that badass leather jacket in a size medium.
A preview of the collection is available via The New York Times.
