Karl Lagerfeld For Macy's: "He Understands America Very, Very Well"

Sneak-peeks of Karl Lagerfeld's campaign for Macy's were revealed yesterday, and today we have two sketches of the offerings the Kaiser has for America's favorite department store. The two entities couldn't seem to be more different, with one heading up two of the most high-brow (read: expensive) fashion houses in the world, and the other acting as the most ubiquitous mass, multi-brand shop in America. But, according to Macy's Vice President and Fashion Director, Nicole Fischelis, the differences could be bridged: "We met with him and he knew who we wanted to reach. He gets it. He understands America very, very well." Translation: The designs are extremely wearable, but still fashionable and may be a reach for department-store regulars. They're also way affordable, with the 45 styles ranging from $50 to $170. The collection will be available on August 31 in almost one-third of all Macy's locations. (WWD)
