The Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s collection will consist of 45 limited edition pieces that will be available on August 31 at 235 of Macy’s stores as well as online, ranging from USD50 to USD170. That means good news for everyone looking to get a piece of the Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s collection as Macy’s ship internationally. Check out all 45 pieces of the Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s Collection below.
Those are my picks; view the rest of the Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s collection in the slideshow below.
The Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s collection is rather Karl-inspired than Karl-designed if you ask me. Those tall white collars, black and white pieces as well as the gloves used and his image on t-shirts? It looks to me like Macy’s is tapping on Karl Lagerfeld’s popularity here.
High fashion meets high street collaborations have always been about the money. Consumers get ‘high fashion’ at a fraction of high fashion prices, and the collaborators rake in the money, a win-win situation. And of course you get high street quality you find at mass-market labels but when it is down to this level, that probably does not matter a lot. As for how much design thought do the designers actually put into these collaborations, we do not know. After designing up to 8 collections a year, one can only wonder but of course a certain quality has to be achieved. Still everybody is happy, no love lost there.
Check back at Macys.com come August 31 when the Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s collection launches.
