Lagerfeld Gets Low for Macy’s
Karl Lagerfeld previewed his collection for Macy’s Impulse Wednesday, showing lots of black, white and tops emblazoned with the designer’s own image (would we expect anything else?). The capsule collection will go on sale Aug. 31 at 235 select Macy’s stores.
Lagerfeld has been busy designing everything from Chanel’s pricey threads to Diet Coke bottles. Though he seems to have his fingers in just about everything, we still find it a bit odd that the very man who told Anna Wintour and her daughter that those who shop the sales racks should be segregated from full-price paying customers when in a store is now designing ANOTHER wallet-friendly collection. But hey, fashion is fickle, no?
As for us, we’ll be passing on the tanks that depict Lagerfeld’s own image (even when they hit the sale rack), because like Mr. T says, “Express yourself! Do Bill Blass, Calvin Klein or Gloria Vanderbilt wear clothes with your name on it? NO! Of course Not! …Wear your own name.”
