go/see/buy: karl lagerfeld for macy’s.

go/see/buy Uncategorized

what hasn’t karl lagerfeld done? he’s worked at storied french houses balmain, patou, chloé, and chanel (plus fendi). he’s designed costumes for madonna, kylie minogue, and the stage. he’s an avid photographer, shooting all ad campaigns plus editorials for magazines like harpers bazaar, visionaire, and numéro. he’s designed furniture and art. he saw the future of the high-low collaboration as the first designer to partner with h&m, and now he’s back doing it again with macy’s. the 45 piece collection includes faux leather jackets, shorts, and skinny pants, floral chiffon print shirts and dresses, jersey high neck dresses, and of course graphic t-shirts.

macy’s in union square hosted a preview event last night sponsored by san francisco magazine, and not only was it fun to check out the collection, but also catch up with my favorite blog friends. it’s funny how many of us made a beeline to particular items that we saw in the lookbook — i went right to the print blouses, amber was after the pink chiffon dress, santina wanted the leather shorts (as did lots of other shoppers), and whit spied the textured floral keyhole dress). the collection is available now at macy’s union square, online and at 235 locations nationwide. what pieces do you have your eye on?
