Fasten your fashionable seat belts, the genius of Karl Lagerfeld is coming to Macy’s and these EXCLUSIVE sketches from the line show that the collection, like every other Lagerfeld endeavor is destined for long lines, slightly frazzled, fashion obsessed women dying to get a piece and the not so commonly heard phrase – “Sold Out!” In a collaboration match made in style heaven, one of the largest retail brands in the U.S has opened its doors to one of fashion’s most iconic designers.
As the ground breaking Designer behind uber powerful brands like Chanel and Fendi, Lagerfeld is definitely poised to shake things up with his capsule collection for Macy’s. “Karl Lagerfeld is one of the most celebrated designers of our time,” said Jeff Gennette, Macy’s chief merchandising officer. “His participation in Macy’s designer capsule initiative marks a very fashionable milestone. A true representation of his iconic style, Karl Lagerfeld’s exclusive collection for Macy’s adds a new dimension of attainable luxury for our customers.”
The coveted Designer also shares the above sentiment of providing “attainable luxury” to the masses. He stated, “To me Macy’s is the perfect department store in the US where everybody can find what they’re looking for without ruining their budget, that’s why I am happy to make this limited collection just for Macy’s.”
So what can we expect from this collection? A blend of refined dresses, airy tops, modern tweeds and Lagerfeld’s signature high-collared neck, priced on average from $50 to $170. The color palette will range from soft to shocking pink and grey to noir. You can also look forward to a little rock and roll edge with the collection. Collectible tee-shirts, chic leggings and comfortable jackets mixed with crocodile print are on the horizon.
Karl Lagerfeld for Impulse Only at Macy’s will be sold in approximately 235 Macy’s stores nationwide and on macys.com beginning August 31.
