The new Lagerfeld X Macy’s collection will feature affordable RTW pieces. The line is rumoured to launch for AW11, and is expected to be available both in store and online.
The high-low collaboration, rumored to include everything from denim to gowns, hasn’t been officially confirmed but all signs point to yes:
Speculation about the venture has been rampant since early September, when Lagerfeld announced that he would not be showing his signature collection during Paris Fashion Week and instead had a fast fashion line in the works…. ‘I wanted this for a long time,’ Lagerfeld told WWD. ‘I prefer to work in another way. I can’t compete with Chanel. I don’t want to be the poor child of myself. This has been my vision for years.’

The big question is, who will design Kate’s wedding gown? At least one fact is clear, that the designer will be British,one who can measure up, to the Monarchy’s high standard of dressing. We’ll have to wait until next year to see Kate walk down the aisle.
