The New York Attorney General’s office announced this week it has found “loss prevention officers” at Macy’s department store to have followed Black and Latino customers more often than white patrons.

Jay Z Releases Statement About Racial Profiling & His Collaboration With Barneys

Last week, the mainstream media suddenly remembered racial profiling exists after a series of high-profile incidents in New York City. Unconnected to each other (as far as I know), several young Black people came forward about having been detained by police after shopping in department stores after they were accused of not reeeeally being able

Francisco Costa To Design A Capsule Collection For Macy’s

Macy’s is really getting on their designer collaboration flow these days. Their first few capsule lines were little-hyped and could have fallen easily to the wayside, but they followed up with a power line-up: first Doo.Ri, with Alberta Ferretti hot on its heels, and now news has broken that Calvin Klein designer and perennial supermodel…

Alberta Ferretti And Macy’s Unveil Pieces For Impulse Collaboration

Last month, Macy’s announced that their next Impulse capsule collection would be designed by Italian fashion entrepreneur Alberta Ferretti. All of the line’s pieces were presented online yesterday and (of course) I already know which ones I’ll be making a beeline for when they hit 185 Macy’s locations on April 17. Priced from $49 to…

Alberta Ferretti Will Design A Capsule Collection For Macy’s

Just last week, I told you about Doo-Ri Chung’s upcoming collection for Macy’s, but this week, I heard about the next designer up for an Impulse capsule and I can say with all honesty that this is the one I’d wait in line for in a heartbeat. In two months, Alberta Ferretti will join the…

Doo-Ri Chung To Unveil Her Macy’s Collaboration

On the off chance that you live in deep seclusion, designer capsule collections for budget-priced stores are all the rage right now. H&M is perhaps the most prolific collaborator for this purpose: Commes des Garçons, Lanvin, and Versace have all produced lines with the mass retailer, and Marni is next in line. I’m familiar —…

Steven Tyler Designed A Clothing Line For Women That Want To Look Like Steven Tyler

You wake up in a stupor. You think: Where is my scarf-covered microphone stand? Where are my platform man-boots? My feathered hair? My deep-v jumpsuit and coordinated leather earrings? And then you remember: I’m not Steven Tyler, and your world comes crashing down. But! Oh! Now, at least, you can dress like you’re an aging…

An Impromptu “Hallelujah Chorus”

Imagine wandering around the mall one day and having more than 600 people spontaneously break into song. That’s exactly what happened to shoppers at a Philadelphia Macy’s last month when they were treated to an ebullient rendition of the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s “Messiah.” Part of the Knight Foundation’s “Random Acts of Culture” initiative, the…

Madonna’s Material Girl Juniors Line For Macy’s Is Rather Ho-Hum

Madonna? Designing for Macy’s? A mall store? Yes, it’s true. Macy’s has released the first sketches from Material Girl, the juniors’ line the pop star is “designing” with her 13-year-old daughter, Lourdes. Don’t mean to be a hater, but these clothes look like any other generic juniors’ brand sold at Macy’s. I know they’re for…

Madonna Used Child Labor To Create New Fashion Line

We’ll have to wait until August to see Madonna‘s much-hyped new fashion brand, MG icon, but we had to wonder why the Material Girl chose to launch with a junior’s line at Macy’s instead of, say, a more sophisticated collection at Barneys. Turns out, it was all a matter of convenience: In a recent AP…

The Queen Of Queens? Anna To Make Awkward Store Appearance

So, we are already cringing at thoughts of Vogue editor and fashion royal Anna Wintour addressing the masses at Macy’s in the New York borough of Queens, of all places. The collision of these two worlds is guaranteed to be the stuff good reality shows are made of. (Too bad they’re no longer filming…

Kristin Davis’ Clothing Line Is Very “Charlotte”

We were a little surprised when we heard that Kristin Davis had decided to get into the fashion business, putting her name on a line of clothes for department store chain Belk. What would her line look like? Would there be pearls? Now we know the answer: No pearls; however, there are plenty of ladylike…
