Valentino for Gap Collection Debuts
The parka, the T- shirt, the hoodie and even cargo pants have been given the Valentino touch in a new capsule collection for the Gap in Europe. If you like ruffles, this is the line for you. Valentino has taken the line's signature flower-like ruffles and flounces off evening gowns and luxury handbags and put them on casual clothing. The results are beautiful if perhaps a little over-the-top. Vogue UK has images of the seven-piece collection, which was launched to celebrate the opening of Gap's first Italian store last week in Milan. The line will also be sold at Gap in London and at Colette in Paris but isn't expected to jump the pond. The line is just the latest in a series of high/low collaborations including the recent H&M Lanvin line.
