Gwyneth Paltrow Collaborates With Stella McCartney on New Collection, Pieces Start at $795

Gwyneth Paltrow is taking a page from Kanye West's playbook and collaborating with a respected fashion designer on a capsule collection. But unlike West's line, which consisted of expensive jeans, cotton tees, and sweatshirts, Paltrow's clothes, which will be sold on her website Goop, will start at an even higher price point: Nothing's less than $795.

Paltrow's fashion partner is BFF Stella McCartney; their collection is called Stella McCartney x Goop and launches on the site on Sept. 12. In an interview with WWD, the Iron Man actress said she didn't design the clothes, but rather edited them. "I think of myself as a woman who is a lover of beautiful things," Paltrow, in a very Kanye moment, told WWD. “I’m very specific about my taste. The role I want in a partnership is curating a collection as opposed to taking a designer point of view. I can tweak a blazer and make it the perfect blazer. It’s being able to fulfill what my ideal things ought to be.

McCartney, for her part, considered Paltrow as a muse. "I have quite a lot of admiration for her at so many levels and that’s a big part of how I design. Her spirit and inner beauty as well as outer beauty are a big inspiration for me. I draw from that every day from all my friends.”

"She has all these amazing women," Paltrow continued, referencing Cameron Diaz, Naomi Watts, Liv Tyler, Kate Hudson, Kate Moss and Rihanna, all of whom McCartney has dressed. "We all represent different aspects of a woman."

The pieces the two stylish girlfriends came up with -- like a black blazer, charcoal gray knit jumpsuit, and black jeans -- are "subtle," said McCartney, and "classic," said Paltrow. "These designs are not going to blow anyone away," clarified McCartney. "They are staple pieces."

I'm sure they all made of the finest sustainably produced, hypoallergenic, cruelty-free luxury fabrics, and lovingly hand-sewn by the most adorable ten-year-old girls in Vietnam.

A more fitting name for the line would be CU Next Tuesday.

Are people under the impression that the market for $800 plus clothes does not exist?

They realize not everyone can afford these clothes, but guess what? They're not making them for everyone. I don't get the newsworthiness of two rich bitches making clothes for other rich bitches who have the money to spend.

R2, what would either of them know about making clothes for average people? They're doing what they know and aren't two-faced about it. It bothers me less than Madonna pontificating on Syria or Oprah's "i'm just folks" act.

So it's going to be ratty cut offs and black gladiator sandals?
