In celebration of their new Milan flagship store Gap has announced that they will be partnering with the House of Valentino on a capsule collection for women. The range has been designed by Valentino's creative directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, who set out to bring "together the iconic world of Valentino and Gap's fashion essentials (by) combining luxury with basics".
The new range - which will be priced in keeping with existing collections - is launching in Gap's first Italian store on Milan's Corso Vittorio Emanuele, and will also be sold in the Oxford Circus London flagship, Dover Street Market and Colette in Paris.
The collection is due to launch at the end of November, making it a stand-out month for fashion followers who also have the Lanvin for H&M collection (unveiling on 23 November) to look forward to.
