The first sketches of Karl Lagerfeld’s designs for his capsule collection for Macy’s surfaced last week. The line is set to launch in August in 250 (of 800) Macy’s doors, as well as online at Macys.com. Consisting of 45 limited edition styles, the average price of pieces in the collection is $100. Jeff Gennette, Macy’s Chief Merchandising Officer said that “it’s quintessential Lagerfeld but done at affordable prices…They’re the type you can see them from a distance and know they’re Karl’s.”
Karl Lagerfeld is scheduled to make an appearance in early September at the Macy’s in Herald Square, New York. I wonder if this will be tied to Fashion’s Night Out? I can’t wait for this collection to come out. It’s not often that you can buy clothing designed by Karl at an affordable price. These will definitely be investment pieces to keep – I’ll keep you posted as more info is released.
