WANT.* (*Karl Lagerfeld edition)

Saturday, August 20, 2011

I admit to being kind of meh over cheap-chic designer collaborations these days -- the waiting in line to be the first to get it, the so-so quality with the higher price tags, the fact that *everyone* has it/wants it/recognizes it. Give me a totally unique vintage dress instead any day.

Except! I had paid almost no attention to the upcoming Karl Lagerfeld for Macy's collaboration until I spotted the above ad in the September Vogue. Um, LOVE. He's done some classic, pretty dresses in black and white (below) and I'm tempted to camp out to get my hands on them when they go on sale August 31. (See the whole collection here.)

If anyone needs me, I'll be investing in a sleeping bag. (Hmmm… Karl Lagerfeld for North Face?)

I love the one on the left! I saw it and marked my calendar!

Interesting! I missed this entirely. Too bad I have a damn proposal going in that day.

That beings said, though I love them, I'm very curious as to whether or not the Macy's crowd will wear them.

Also, I get your cheap-chic "meh" - I would prefer vintage, too, but I'm just too, well, Germanic in stature to buy much vintage. So I'll take a carefully selected Missoni for Target piece and mix it in with the rest of my wardrobe. That is, if I can get one. ;-)
