Gwyneth Paltrow Designed Two $500 Sweaters, Still Out Of Touch With Reality
September 21, 2012
It’s been one hell of a September for Gwyneth Paltrow—not only was she named People Magazine’s “World’s Best Dressed Woman,” beating out one Miss Kate Middleton, but she enjoyed a successful collaboration with Rag & Bone, and even teamed up with J.Crew on her website, Goop.com, to show the world how the 1% transitions into fall. This time, the 39-year-old purveyor of all things chic partnered up with British knitwear label Chianti and Parker on two adorable sweaters, sold exclusively on Goop. That means you can expect them to be perfectly on-trend…and incredibly pricey.
Working with Chianti and Parkers founders, cousins Anna Singh and Rachel Wood, Gwyneth created two wear-with-anything pieces that fit right into the eco-conscious label’s ultra-comfy repertoire: the first, a playful intarsia heart-motif cashmere sweater in navy and white, priced at $515, and the second, a thick cream-and-navy-striped cashmere number with an offsetting sky blue pocket patch, complete with three-button detailing on the shoulder. That one sells for $485.
Goop shares many ethical and stylistic values with Chinti and Parker, from a commitment to sustainability and better living to a love of timeless, beautifully made clothing” Singh told UK’s Telegraph. “We are immensely privileged to have collaborated in this way and hope you love the pieces as much as we do.”
Anyone else betting these things sell like hot cakes? Head over to Goop to snag yourself the fall basics before they’re all gone!
