Here is your first look at Valentino's debut capsule collection for Gap. Due to launch this weekend, the limited edition collection is to celebrate the arrival of Gap in Italy this month. Valentino's creative directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli have created seven pieces featuring the label's signature ruffles and bows. They have reinterpreted the parker in three styles all in heavyweight khaki cotton and including a short jacket, a hooded cropped jacket and a longer parker with ruffles around the neckline. Other pieces include an above-the-knee tiered khaki skirt with a trademark Valentino bow on one hip, a pair of cargo pants with frill-bordered pockets, a T-shirt with oversized bow, and a hoodie with ruffles at the hem.

The range will be available at a limited number of stores worldwide, except the US: Gap's new Milan store, Colette in Paris, and, in Britain, Gap's flagship store in Oxford Street, London W1, from 9.30am, and at Dover Street Market, London W1, from 11am.
