Karl Lagerfeld To Bring Fashion's Top Tier To Macy's George Napolitano/FilmMagic

Karl Lagerfeld is making his way to Macy’s! The mastermind behind Chanel’s coveted and ultra luxe designs is now set to bring his high-end expertise to the mainstream with a capsule collection for the retailer, reports WWD. Set to hit the racks next fall, Karl’s limited-edition line of women’s clothing comes as part of Macy’s new designer series, where the retailer will rotate different higher-end collections through their Impulse department every two months. And while this isn’t the Kaiser’s first time lending his couture touch to the mass market–he teamed up with H&M in 2004–we can’t wait to see what drool-worthy pieces he whips up for the retailer. “Karl Lagerfeld holds a unique place in the world of fashion, an icon who is the ultimate modernist,” Terry J. Lundgren, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Macy’s Inc. told WWD of the highly anticipated collaboration. And while details and prices have yet to be revealed, we wonder if Karl will channel Chanel or take an entirely new approach? Either way, we’re sure this is one collection that will be well worth every fashionista’s wait! —Jessie Goldberg

awesome! too bad there’s no Macy’s in Canada :'(

Maia, don’t worry — we’ll be able to buy the clothes on eBay. Unfortunately, I’m sure the sellers will jack the price up when they first come out.

Hey, did anyone see the Karl Lagerfeld documentary? I’m desperate to get the song that plays during the Chanel A/W show when the models walk in concentric rings. Great movie about an amazing man — see it if you haven’t already!

So pardon my ignorance, but what is a capsule?

Kat on

Sandy- a capsule collection is a smaller collection usually sold somewhere/under a different store besides the designers own boutiques. Such as Zac Posen for Target or Lanvin for H&M. It won’t be the same quality fabrics as true Chanel pieces, but can’t wait to see it.
