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 — very familiar — with such partnerings, but I’ve pretty much ignored designers’ efforts with Macy’s Impulse. Karl Lagerfeld and Giambattista Valli both released lines with the store last year, but they seemed to fly more under the radar when compared to the utter chaos that H&M’s collections have been known to create.

On February 15, CFDA winner Doo-Ri Chung will debut her high-low line with Macy’s, a 33-piece collection chock full of spring basics. Doo-Ri is famed for her stunning drapery skills (and the showstopping deep purple number she outfitted the First Lady in), particularly with jersey dresses, which is something that has the potential to translate extraordinarily well in a lower-priced collection. (Two dresses from the collection are above.) Brightly colored cocktail dresses, tanks and tees, and drapey blouses abound — I’m not going to do anything crazy to get my hands on this merchandise (ahem, Versace for H&M), but I will be buying more than one piece. Taking Macy’s unbeatable prices into account, I may even pick up the whole collection. [Racked]

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 rock star grasping onto the last vestiges of his former cool! Tyler’s new line — called Andrew Charles — is a collaboration with Andy and Tommy Hilfiger (whaaaaaaat?), and can be found at Macy’s. [ABC News Radio]

Karl Lagerfeld Teams Up With Macy’s?!

Love Karl Lagerfeld’s designs, but can’t actually afford Chanel or one of his eponymous collections? Well, you’re in luck because Uncle Karl is going to release a collection just for Macy’s. Yep, you read that right. Karl Lagerfeld plus Macy’s equals a mass collection that will include jeans, party dresses, and everything in between. The collection is slated for a 2011 release. This collaboration is quite shocking as Lagerfeld doesn’t seem like the type of person to even walk into a Macy’s. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

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 event included members of the Philadelphia Opera Company, along with participants from 28 other choral groups. The group was accompanied by Macy’s in-house Wanamaker Organ, the largest pipe organ in the world. [YouTube] Keep reading »

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 kids, but kids can get outfits like this at Forever 21 or Target or, like, 20 other stores. Where’s the Madonna in all this? [FoxNews.com] Keep reading »

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 interview, Madonna claimed that daughter Lourdes was the brains behind the threads: “Really she does most of the work, honestly.” And she told “Access Hollywood” that Lourdes comes in to start working while she’ll “sit back and watch.” Well, alrighty then. Lourdes is only 13, but she does have a killer fashion sense, and designing clothes beats the chores we used to have to do. And we have to admire Madonna’s cajones on this one, as opposed to all these stars denying they ripped off their so-called designs lately. Instead of lying about it, just put it all out there. You’ll sleep better at night. [NBC New York] Keep reading »
