I have mentioned many times my love for Karl Lagerfeld. He is the perfect example of the eccentric genius and he seems to have his hand in just about every artistic endeavor. Of course it is the clothing that keeps us coming back for more. Alas, as beautiful and thoughtful as it is on the runway, it often doesn’t agree with our bank accounts. But Mr. Lagerfeld, being the mastermind that he is, even has a solution for that.
For the second time (the first was with H&M), Mr. Lagerfeld is creating a line with a price tag fit for the masses. This time the collection is in conjunction with Macy’s and will be available in stores at the end of this month! The clothing is chic, versatile (there are pieces that transition easily from work to play) and cost between $49 and $169 per item! The line “Karl Lagerfeld For Impulse” is sure to please a lot of shoppers.
I love the fact that so many designers are taking their skills to stores more accessible to the general public. For me these collections have such a great draw. From the person who had only considered Lagerfeld an aspirational designer, to the runway-regular who wants to mix things up, these collections have a way of making just about anyone feel good.
Check out some of the pieces from Lagerfeld’s collection below:
What do you think of the collection? How do you feel about designers creating collections geared towards the general public?
