Ok guys, here we go… the first look at Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s! What do you think? I know it’s just the sketches but there have to be some first thoughts streaming out of you right now as you look at them… good, bad, indifferent?
The new line, Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s will drop into over 200 Macy’s stores (and on Macys.com) on August 31st. There are 45 pieces in total and pricepoints fall between $50-$170. The reason I ask your initial thoughts is because this collection has a temporary run time. At the moment it’s scheduled for six to eight weeks on the shelves. However, Macy’s could shorten or extend depending on how we, the buyers, react with our purchasing power.
We’ll all of course have to wait and see the pieces in person to really judge whether this is a collaboration worth celebrating. I will say that I still own two pieces that I bought in the H&M/Karl Lagerfeld capsule collection. He’s a man that takes every single collaboration very seriously so these pieces will be worthy of closer inspection no matter what the initial reaction to the sketches! It’s Lagerfeld and you just can’t ignore the call of Uncle Karl!
