Fall 11’ is ripe with fresh fashion. Looks to kill for from designers across the board- Chloe, Lanvin, The Row….the list goes on. But Fall 11’ also brings us some fabulous high end designer collaborations from the best of the best. Enter Karl Lagerfeld, the long time genius behind Chanel, Missoni, the fabled Italian fashion empire and Versace, the epitome of glitz and glamour- all have created collections for the mass market.
Macy’s will debut Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s on August 31st. This 45 piece collection will range in price from $50 to $170 and will only be sold on Macys.com and 235 of Macy’s 800 plus stores. Lucky for Columbus fashionistas, Macy’s Easton and Macy’s at Tuttle Crossing are two of those stores that will carry the collection. The collection will feature Lagerfeld’s signature ‘classic with edge’ aesthetic. Think high collars, lady-like shifts and lots of black with a chic rock and roll vibe. …Secretly, I’m hoping Karl’s trademark fingerless gloves will have made their way into the collection too!
On September 13th, Missoni unveils its highly anticipated partnership with Target. While Target has had several designer collaborations over the last few years, Missoni is by far it’s largest with items including fashion, housewares and even a bicycle. What’s most exciting is that they did not shy away from their signature (zigzag prints and bold patterns) as some designers do in order to differentiate their mass collection from their high end collection. Missoni kept true to themselves and is giving the ‘budget-nista’ exactly what makes the brand so loved- fabulous pieces!…. Now at a fabulous price! Items range from $2.99 to $599. Shop the collection at all Columbus Target stores and Target.com through October 22nd.
Versace. Need I say more? Except in my best Brad Goreski voice, “Donatellllaaaa!” The house known for its extravagance and over the top lux, brings it’s first ever mass retailer collection to H&M. On November 17th, the collection that is said to have drawn inspiration from its archives will hit 300 select stores, one of which is the H&M at Easton Town Center. Expect ultra glam, ultra sexy pieces in gowns with leg baring slits, leather and studded embellishment. The collection will also include Men and Home….but it’s the dresses that have my heart all aflutter and I’d be willing to bet, yours too…..
