Paltrow and McCartney team up

Gwyneth Paltrow and Stella McCartney have joined forces to make a capsule collection for Goop.

One is a mega star actress, the other one of the biggest designers in the world.

But now Gwyneth and Stella have teamed up for the first time to create a capsule collection for Goop, Gwyneth's lifestyle website.

"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," explained Gwyneth to WWD.

"It makes perfect sense. Stella and I keep our [collaborations] to a minimum.”

Prices start at $795 and will include staple wardrobe items.

As well as blazers, jeans and trousers, there is also a charcoal gray knit jumpsuit that's sure to bring the wow factor.

"We sat down and talked about it a lot and it was very considered," Stella said of the designs.

"The outcome is designs that are very timeless. In order to create pieces that are effortless, it's very considered. Gwyneth was a huge part of that. This is a big reflection of her life. The pieces are very subtle."

Not only are the pair business partners, but also consider each other to be best friends.

Stella takes on the role of designer, while Gwyneth sees her job as curator.

"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]," said Gwyneth, as she heaped praise on Stella.

"I have quite a lot of admiration for her at so many levels and that's a big part of how I design. Her spirit and inner beauty as well as outer beauty are a big inspiration for me. I draw from that every day from all my friends," Stella replied.
