Yes, the Kaiser is coming to Herald Square. On Tuesday, September 6, there will be a red carpet arrival of celebs and the Chanel designer himself at the Macy's store in Manhattan. This is to celebrate the highly publicized arrival of Karl Lagerfeld's collection for Macy's.
This is the man who commented that those who purchased clothing on sale did not deserve to shop at his regular boutiques. I love this little Karl gem, "Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants."
To contradict himself, he also was quoted as saying ""Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans — it’s up to you."
The collection itself consists of rather conservative pieces with a black, grey and white palette. A few artsy tees with Karl's image on them makes for a fun item. The line is indeed affordable, ranging from $50 - $170.
