Karl Lagerfeld has added another string to his already over-extended bow, by teaming up with American department store Macy’s on a capsule collection. The collection, called ‘Karl Lagerfeld for Impulse’, is made up of 45 limited edition styles with an average price tag of $100, aimed at the higher end Macy’s customer. Two sketches of the range have been released to prepare customers for what’s to come.
The range will launch in 235 stores from 31st August, with a limited six to eight week run, depending on consumer reaction. But don’t feel left out if you don’t have easy access to America – they always have an international website that delivers to the UK!
A fashion collaboration is nothing new for Unkle Karl, who has teamed up with H&M, Diesel and Hogan in the past on capsule collections, as well as designing bottles for Diet Coke, pens and lighters for French firm S.T. Dupont and tableware for Swedish crystal makers Orrefors. All of that around his usual bi-annual shows for fashion houses Chanel and Fendi, and not forgetting those haute couture shows.
How does he do it?
