Macy’s is hopping on the designer-for-less bandwagon by initiating a one-off designer collection next year designed by Karl Lagerfeld. The capsule collection will be produced in limited quantities and sold in approximately 250 Macy’s stores and online on Macys.com in September 2011. “The collections will rotate every two months and will start in February with Kinder Aggugini, a London-based designer who has worked with John Galliano, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith, Calvin Klein, Costume National and Versace.”
I’m thinking Karl’s capsule collection will look more like his own eponymous line rather than lines he designs for like Chanel and Fendi. If so, I have to say I’m not the biggest fan. However, if he takes any inspiration from Chanel I will definitely be excited to see how the collection turns out – and may even have to get some pieces!
