The cat’s out of the bag. Gwyneth Paltrow and Stella McCartney’s mystery lovechild isn’t a vegan cleanse or meat-free cookbook as some quarters have surmised, but rather a six-piece collection that includes a black wool blazer, a sleeveless charcoal-gray wool jumpsuit, a denim-and-velvet jean, and a black wool trouser. Also available are two versions of McCartney’s Fall 2013 “Beckett” handbag, rendered in the designer’s “Eco Faux Nappa,” a phthalate-free material that comprises more than 50 percent vegetable oil.

The line’s distinguished provenance can’t be bought for a song, of course. Prices range from $695 for the “timeless” jean to a vertiginous $1,895 for the blazer. Unless you regularly summer in the Hamptons, prepare to hawk a vital organ (or two).

“In order to create pieces that are effortless, it’s very considered,” McCartney says of the partnership. “Gwyneth was a huge part of that. This is a big reflection of her life.”
Paltrow has been accused of many things, but being cheap isn’t one of them.
