Co-branded projects seem to be more popular then ever if we take into account the multitude of fashion news that appeared lately on this topic. After several celebrity featured projects it seems that numerous rumors about famous designers involved in similar projects have began to emerge. One of the most popular rumors which was recently confirmed is that Karl Lagerfeld will design a lower priced collection for Macy’s.
Karl Lagerfeld has received a lot of attention lately especially after the rumors that he might leave Chanel and that he might be replaced by Haider Ackerman. However those who were saddened by the rumors can now rejoice at the thought that we will still get to enjoy the designer’s fabulous creations at a more affordable price range.
Although some think that the brand choice is a little unexpected, the collection which is due to be released next September is definitely an very awaited one especially if we consider the fact that it range from jeans to fashionable gowns and it will also be available online. As expected the capsule collection will be a limited edition one.
As far as the official statements made on this topic are concerned, Terry J. Lundgren, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Macy’s declared for WWD:
“Karl Lagerfeld holds a unique place in the world of fashion, an icon who is the ultimate modernist.Through the decades, his style and vision have marked the history of design. It is a tremendous honour to bring his inimitable perspective to our fashion customer.”
However the well known retailer is preparing more than just one pleasant surprise for the next year. It seems that other well known fashion designers such as Calvin Klein,Vivienne Westwood, Kinder Aggugini, Paul Smith, Versace and Costume National and that the collections will rotate every two months starting from February. With so many delightful projects it seems that 2011 will be a very interesting one, at least from a fashion and style perspective.
