A new retail giant is challenging the world of collaborations. Being one of the early birds in discount designer high-street collections, Karl Lagerfeld is led to believe to follow the footsteps of London designer Kinder Aggugini, and Matthew Williamson for Macy’s.


Karl will design a capsule collection for Macy’s to be sold in 250 stores and on the Internet beginning in September of next year. His Macy’s line is the first in the retailer’s new designer series, through which designer lines will rotate in the Impulse section of the store every two months. The cycle then begins in February 2012 with former John Galliano employee Kinder Aggugini, followed by Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith, Calvin Klein, Costume National, and Versace.

Following the leaks from insiders, the new Lagerfeld X Macy’s collection will feature affordable RTW pieces. The line is rumoured to launch for AW11, and is expected to be available both in store and online. Just to be updated, try to check it at macys.com from time to time from now on!
