Back in 2004, Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld released a budget friendly collection with H&M that had everyone wanting more.

Well folks, the wait is soon over. Lagerfeld will launch a wallet friendly capsule collection with the department store Macy’s.

About his collaboration with Macy’s, Lagerfeld said, “To me Macy’s is the perfect department store in the U.S. where everybody can find what they’re looking for without ruining their budget,” says Lagerfeld.

This is the third partnership with a luxury fashion designer for Macy’s. The last two collaborations were with Kinder Aggugini and Matthew Williamson.

The Lagerfeld collection will be exclusive to Macy’s and will consist of 45 items that include tops, dresses and jackets that are designed with Lagerfeld’s signature tweed and high collars, and will be sold in limited edition.

Even more exciting is his choices of colors and prints that include pink, grey, and black, as well as crocodile prints reminiscent of the 80’s rocker era. According to Nicole Fischelis, Macy’s group vice president and fashion director, Lagerfeld has given his collection a “contemporary spin” to attract a greater number of consumers.

Macy’s chief merchandising officer Jeff Gennete added, “Karl Lagerfeld is one of the most celebrated designers of our time. [His] exclusive collection for Macy’s adds a new dimension of attainable luxury for our customers.”

The line will hit 235 Macy’s stores around the country, and online at Macys.com beginning August 31, and will feature clothing apparel retailing between $50 – $170.

In reviewing his pre-released sketches below, Lagerfeld has shown that he certainly didn’t skimp on luxury to ensure an affordable price tag.
