Fashion collaborations between famous designers and retailers are becoming more and more popular, letting people get something precious and unique at affordable price ranges. Among such collaborations of special attention deserves the recent Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s capsule collection for the coming fall season.
With a great accent on elegance, high class and sophistication, the collection brings a line of stunning designs, featuring different ensembles for various occasions. From refined all black pieces to flirty dresses, elegant hosiery, figure flattering vests, tweed pieces, high collars or trench coats and classy accessories, such as gloves, there is something for a voguish fashionista to rock the fall fashion season.
Lagerfeld described the collection to Vogue as “a coup d’oeil to the dresses I designed for Chloe and the girlish, more romantic mood of the seventies.”
The popular Chanel designer brings minimalistic designs, where sexiness kisses femininity and elegance, and simplicity harmoniously goes hand in hand with classicism. A special importance is given to small details, like those fingerless gloves or leather, which create a certain rock chic atmosphere. Especially the waist area is highlighted, thus getting that attractive hourglass shape.
Apparently Karl Lagerfeld preferred not to overdo with accessories in this collection, bringing only a few pieces, such as classy black pumps, short necklaces, silhouette enhancing belts and the signature fingerless gloves. All in all, the looks are quite dapper and polished, without eye-catching accessories or details. Just perfect match for office wear or for an elegant evening out!
The entire collection is characterized by a certain masculine vibe, which is best expressed through those dark shades of black, gray and brown. However, there are also brightly colored pieces and numerous floral prints for those who want to underline their romantic and dreamy personality.
The 45-piece Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s Fall 2011 Capsule Collection will arrive in stores on August 31 nationwide. With quite affordable prices, ranging from $50 to $170, the collection is sure just to fly away from the shelves, so keep an eye on the collection and make your selection in advance. As Lagerfeld tweeted about the collection, “Luxury is the ease of a t-shirt in a very expensive dress.” So get a simple piece of clothing from this sensational collection and feel the power of luxury!
