Anyone Else NOT Excited About Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s?
Call me crazy but I’m kinda sorta reeeeally over the whole designer/brand collaboration deal. It was cool a while ago, but now I feel the market has just become over-saturated with collabs…and while yes, it’s nice that consumers can afford high fashion like pieces, I also feel the exclusivity and the quality of these items lessens.
The latest collaboration which everyone but me seems to be excited about is Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s “Impulse” department. And yes, while I love both partners in this collab, I think they should remain separate. Last night Macy’s previewed the collection which consists of 45 items including simple dresses in sharp cuts ad slouched tees (all very Forever21-ish dare I say). The collection is priced between $50 to $170 and goes on sale in 235 stores and macys.com on August 31.
So will you be waiting at the mall doors for Macy’s to open with everyone else who is counting down the days? Check out the gallery for more.
