Gwyneth Paltrow, or "GP" as her dedicated team calls her, has snagged an exclusive Goop.com collaboration with Edie Parker, fashion's favorite clutch purveyor. (The brand has made a business out of graphic clutches that are easy street style bait.) This collaboration features a special insight into GP's life: the two Goop exclusive designs feature the names of Paltrow's four favorite rappers.
One $1,695 clutch has "Hov" inscribed in silver glitter with "Shady" in gold glitter on the other side, giving nods to Jay Z and Eminem. The other $1,695 clutch features "Biggie" and "Pac" in bright red lettering against a pearlescent, blue acrylic background (interesting pairing given the rappers' notorious history of feuding). According to Pret-A-Reporter, this is only a small pool of her favorite rappers; she has yet to reveal the true depths of her love of rap. Perhaps it's coming in the next clutch collaboration.
