Karl Lagerfeld Does Macy’s

It’s not often that someone who regularly creates pieces that are triple (sometimes quantuple) the price of my rent and¬†food creates a collection that we small folk can actually consider purchasing.

Macy’s “Impulse” department tapped Chanel designer, Karl Lagerfeld, to create a beautiful, affordable capsule collection featuring perfectly tailored dresses and edgy¬†separates. Everything from leggings to jackets will be available once the collection hits 235 Macy’s stores, and macys.com, on August 31, 2011.

What do you think of Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s Impulse?

Is this a collection you’d buy? It’s a limited run, so I don’t think that the option of finding a gem on a sales rack is really available.

I’m nuts about that blush dress – how gorgeous! It reminds me of the dresses the women in the 1940s wore in the summertime. The color is so beautifully neutral, I’d love to see it paired with really pigmented, muted jewel tone tights (like Jen’s We Love Colors tights). What about you?

  • Oh yeah, that blush dress is gorgeous! I’ll have to see it all in person and try it on. Definitely going to write it on my calendar and check it out!

  • Oh God, I’m in love with everything too!
