High fashion has never been more democratic: red-carpet celeb favorite Valentino has inked a deal with the Gap to collaborate on a capsule collection for women. The pieces will arrive in select stores in late November—so far, the store locations we've heard confirmed include the Gap in London's Oxford Street, London's Dover Street Market, the Gap in Milan, and Colette in Paris. We're also going to take a wild stab and predict the line will be offered at the Manhattan flagship at 54th Street and Fifth Avenue, where all Gap special projects seem to find a home at some point or another.
