A couple months ago, Gap announced that they’d teamed up with Valentino to produce a capsule collection. The seven-piece collection, created to celebrate Gap’s arrival in Italy, hits stores this Friday, November 26.
Sadly, the pieces will only be available in select stores in Europe–at Gap’s new stores in Rome and Milan, as well as Colette in Paris and at Dover Street Market and Gap’s flagship store in London. We were doubtful as to how Valentino’s signature ruffles would translate into a collaboration for the high street retailer but for the most part, it works. The color palette is simple–army green, cream and black–so as not to upstage the ruffles adorning all the cargo looks.
There are few pieces from the capsule collection that we’re bummed won’t be available stateside. Namely, the black leather skirt (£129), the army parka with ruffles (£149.95), and the gathered skirt fixed with a big loopy bow (£69.95). The ruffle-front cargo pants, however, we’ll gladly leave to folks across the pond. And if you can figure out how to wear them without looking clownish, let us know.
