This week, Gwyneth Paltrow and Diane von Furstenberg released their first collaboration on Goop.com. While the DVF capsule collection is supposed to “celebrate strong iconic and American women,” according to the site, we think it does the exact opposite. First off, everything in the collection is black or white, which is so un-DVF of Ms. von Furstenberg. Usually, her pieces are loud and colorful, but the pieces in this collection are the complete opposite. Yes, black is a strong color, but what “iconic” woman hides behind black wrap dresses, black long-sleeved jumpsuits and dark sunglasses? Not Diane, that’s for sure. What has Gwyneth done to her?
The collab must’ve involved some serious compromise between the two, because the only thing even slightly DVF about it is the python-print scarf and hints of black leopard print. It almost seems like Gwyneth stripped Diane of her artistic freedom and made her basic. (Let’s hope this phase doesn’t last.) But regardless of the drabness of the collection, women are buying it. The Black Wrap Dress ($498) is already sold out, and it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the pieces do too. After all, having both of these big names on your clothing is pretty cool. So, if you’re in need of something black, check it all out with the link below. But if you’re looking for something more DVF inspired, you can shop for more of her pieces here.
