These are the days I’m happy I live in Europe… when announcements like “Gap and Valentino are collaborating on a capsule collection for women” come on to the wire! It’s no lie, people. We are getting one the most well known American and most prestigious Italian brands together in one collection. It’s the pieces dreams are made of! Images of the collection should be released shortly, but first a few details about the thoughts behind the collection and where to find it.
As you may or may not already know, Gap is opening for the first time in Milan! The flagship store will be located on the famous Corso Vittorio Emanuele and will throw open the doors in November 2010. Having made the annoucement that Valentino will help them launch this new store with a limited edition collection, Gap can expect to see lines of hundreds of people waiting for that 10am opening bell!
But here’s the even better news….the collection will also be sold in Gap’s London flagship store on Oxford Street, in Dover Street Market and at Colette in Paris! Sorry, my fellow Americans, there’s no news of a stateside arrival for the line.
