The August 31 launch of Karl Lagerfeld’s highly anticipated contemporary collection for Macy’s is fast approaching. Yesterday, we showed you the first look from the collection (via Vogue) and today Macy’s has released sketches and more deets.
The collection will be comprised of 45 different styles with prices ranging between $50-$170 and will have a limited run of six to eight weeks, or shorter, if the reaction is anything like the frenzy that followed his H&M collection, which sold out in days.
I’m into the retro-inspired dresses seen in the Vogue piece and these sketches. A line in the release about “collectible tee-shirts and comfortable jackets mixed with crocodile print combine with chic leggings” has me a little concerned, but I guess they have to have something for every one.
“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,” Lagerfeld said in a release.
The trade also reveals that Lagerfeld is currently hard at work on a “masstige” collection (the one he cancelled his eponymous collection runway show for two seasons ago) that will be released under his own name and sold primarily online. So, if Lagerfeld for Macy’s sells out before you can get your hands on it, it sounds like you won’t have to wait long for another opportunity to snag some affordable Lagerfeld.
