"To me Macy's is the perfect department store in the United States where everybody can find what they're looking for without ruining their budget," said Karl Lagerfeld in July.
Well, it's here! On Wednesday evening, the much-anticipated Karl Lagerfeld for Macy's "Impuse" capsule collection was showcased in SoHo.
The 45-piece collection, set to launch in select Macy's locations nationwide this fall, mixes a bit of Chanel and a whole lot of Karl. For example, the white-haired, leather-gloved, sunglassed designer/artist/photographer has plastered his image on various tees and tanks, which are available to Lagerfeld lovers for a mere $45. After all, iconically-speaking, Lagerfeld's profile is fashion's equivalent to college football's Joe Paterno.
At the helm of both Fendi and Chanel, Karl is ostensibly one of the most influential voices in fashion. Macy's CMO Jeff Gennette announced, "Karl Lagerfeld's exclusive collection for Macy's adds a new dimension of attainable luxury for our customers."
The collection is priced on average from $50 to $170, and debuts on August 31.
