Karl Lagerfeld's Macy's Debut

The first collection by legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld for Impulse Macy's makes it's debut in stores on August 31, 2011.  Prices range from $49 printed t-shirts up to $169 for wool coats.  For those who love his work but could never afford it, this is the perfect opportunity to wear something by Lagerfeld.  This isn't his first venture into creating clothing for the mass market.  He created the first designer collaboration with H&M back in 2004 that was sold out in record time.  Reports in WWD are saying this current collection for Macy's fell flat.  This came after the line debuted with a runway show at Macy's annual Glamorama event in Minneapolis.

We won't really know the true success of his line until it actually hits stores and the sales numbers do the real talking.  Take a look at the video below as Lagerfeld talks about his inspiration and what we can expect from this new collaboration with Macy's.
