Karl Lagerfeld’s limited-edition collection for the Impulse department at Macy’s hits stores today! While pieces created by the Chanel and Fendi designer usually sell for thousands, this fall line is wallet-friendly, with prices ranging from $50 to $170. “To me Macy’s is the perfect department store in the U.S. where everybody can find what they’re looking for without ruining their budget,” Lagerfeld said. The lineup features dresses, blouses, shorts and more with Lagerfeld’s signature twists like tweed and high collars. See the complete collection in the gallery, and snag it at Macys.com and Macy’s stores now—before it sells out.
Fendi held a fashion show at its Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York last week to celebrate the launch of its brand-new kids’ line, and the luxury label enlisted some of the city’s cutest tots to show off the new collection! Two of the pint-sized models included the offspring of Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford, who walked the runway with daughter Helena (in a floral sundress and silver Mary-Janes) and son Hermes (in gray suit tailored for the sandbox set). Click through to see liberty print tops, cozy leggings, balloon dresses and more from Fendi’s new children’s collection—all worn by distractingly adorable models. The clothes are now available for $150 to $600 at Fendi’s New York location, or by placing an order at your closest Fendi store.
Milan Fashion Week is taking place right now and Gucci, Alberta Ferretti, and Fendi have already shown strong collections. D&G (right) introduced alphabet prints in bright Technicolor blocks and Fendi showed off a new take on the classic bag (left). Plus, we saw some star power in the front row as Katie Holmes stopped by the Max Mara fashion show, as the label that honored her with its 2011 Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future award this season. Click through the gallery to see the fashion, celebrities and beauty at Milan Fashion Week so far.
On September 20th, Swarovski will be auctioning off 22 LBDs designed by some of world’s most influential fashion designers. The crystal-making line challenged the designers to each create a one-of-a-kind LBD using Swarovski gems as embellishments. The designers tapped for the project include Alber Elbaz for Lanvin, Fendi and Giorgio Armani Prive (each of whose creations are shown from left to right). In addition to these dazzling dresses, Swarovski is releasing a book, 22 Ways to Say Black (available on Amazon.com) with blown-out images of the collection. The proceeds from each dress and the book will benefit cancer-related charities including the American Cancer Society and La Ligue Nationale Contre le Cancer in France. Can’t wait to add one of these beauties to your collection? You can bid by phone (212-940-1228), by e-mail (email@example.com), or in person at the Phillips de Pury & Company auction in New York City this Monday.
The following is a guest post from one of our favorite online shopping destinations, Decadestwo.
Labor Day is less than two weeks away and that means there’s only 12 days left to wear white—or so the saying goes. Being true fashion rebels, we like to wear white year round. Pure, fresh and light, white is flattering on a variety of skin tones—especially when you’ve been soaking up a little sun all summer long. We love this white knit jersey Louis Vuitton party dress (size 38, $775), with its delicate floral embroidery and silk panels, it’s as comfy as your favorite T-shirt. A sexy white top, like this Kaufman Franco tank (size 6, $660), is a great to-go for any soiree. And we can always count on Fendi to provide perfectly understated glamour like this sequined cropped jacket (size 40, $500).
