Designer, Kinder Aggugini tapped by Macy’s
Kinder Aggugini may not be a designer that pops up first in you head. But, take note of his name, because this rising star’s work will soon be available at Macy’s. The department store has tapped Aggugini to design a special collection that will retail between $50 – $300 and be available in 250 Macy’s locations. Given the success of designer collaborations, it makes sense for a major retailer like Macy’s to tap into this trend.
Aggugini is currently one of London’s favorites, and having designed for Versace, Vivienne Westwood, and Calvin Klein, we can see why he’s such a hit across the pond. His mood board (pictured above) has us looking forward to his Macy’s collection, which appears to be very rocker chic.
According to the NY Times, “he started his label about four years ago based on his fantasy of what a marriage between Coco Chanel and Sid Vicious might look like.”
Hints of this relationship are reflected in Aggugini’s mood board above. If you’re excited about these new looks, you’ll have to be patient, since the collection isn’t due to hit stores until February.
