Fashion Scoop: Gwyneth Paltrow Collaborates with Stella McCartney

Gwyneth Paltrow just recently announced that she and pal Stella McCartney were teaming up for a limited edition collection of investment pieces for the e-commerce leg of her GOOP website. Now, the actress and lifestyle guru has unveiled another surprise collab for her e-store, this time with Matthew Williamson. The two got together to create this green sweatshirt festooned with Swarovski crystals at the neckline. “It’s such an effortless piece for autumn, the crystal embroidered neckline adds a twist to the classic off-duty sweatshirt adding a decadent touch to wardrobe staple,” said Williamson. The piece is of course, quite pricey, ringing in at an exorbitant $845. If you’re feeling it, you can pick it up over at GOOP. What do you think, guys, would you make the splurge? (Telegraph)

Not everyone in fashion has been keen on Kanye West‘s attempts at design, but it looks like Yeezy’s got a friend in Giuseppe Zanotti. The famed shoe designer dished to Life + Times on his relationship with the rapper: “I enjoyed working with him and observing through his fashion designs the way trends are changing…We should all recognize this change and be part of it. Kanye, with his courage and his honesty has done his part,” he said. “He was not afraid of facing such a dangerous world such as the fashion one, he was not afraid of shouting to everyone who he is.” Zanotti also thinks critics were a little unfair to Kanye about his namesake label: “People are too hard when something new changes the balance. Unfortunately, the fashion planet is not only a creative system, but also a political machinery. Kanye entered the entire environment with his head held high and his brave nature has to be respected.” (Life and Times)
