Stella McCartney and Gwyneth PaltrowThough you'd be forgiven for assuming she'd already released a dozen clothing collections with her hands tied behind her back (all while bathing in a giant kale smoothie), Gwyneth Paltrow has never in fact launched a full collection. That is, until now, as WWD has revealed that Her Royal Goopness and bestie Stella McCartney are collaborating on a line of staples, which will be available exclusively on Goop.
The collection will include separates including "black wool trousers, black jeans, a black blazer, a grey knit jumpsuit and Stella McCartney's Beckett handbag in three neutral hues."
"These designs are not going to blow anyone away. They are staple pieces," McCartney told the magazine, clearly attempting some sort of low expectations fashion-Jedi mind trick.

Gwyneth, meanwhile, was less measured in her enthusiasm, giving quotes that sound more like material for a Stella McCartney wedding toast than an article about clothes.
"When one of your best friends is a very successful artist and you love and admire her work, you want to support it at all [costs]. . . I went to Stella and asked if she would collaborate with me. She never had done a collaboration like this before until I strong-armed her. She's the most insanely amazing designer."
And she didn't stop there, continuing, "We complement each other. It was the right time. We're very close friends. We were bringing two worlds together and it was important not to force them. . . It makes perfect sense. Stella and I keep our [collaborations] to a minimum."

(You can almost see Stella gritting her teeth during this interview, as if to say, "I think they get it, Gwyn," no?)
Pieces in the line will begin at $795, so start saving up now, and remember, while the clothes themselves may cost you one month's rent, the smug smile you'll be able to flash when you can respond to your friend's compliment with a nonchalant "Oh, thank you, it's Gwyneth" will be priceless.
