Karl Lagerfeld is doing “masstige”. It has been confirmed (after many rumours) that Macy’s is launching a new initiative that will rotate one-off designer capsule collections every two months, starting late next year. Monsieur Lagerfeld is taking part in the collaboration which is something he hasn’t done in over six years, and demonstrates his determination to branch into the world of lower price points.
Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren said “Karl Lagerfeld holds a unique place in the world of fashion, an icon who is the ultimate modernist. Through the decades, his style and vision have marked the history of design. It is a tremendous honor to bring his inimitable perspective to our fashion customer.”
Tailor4Less may not have a name that rolls off the tongue like Versace or Prada, but do not discard this Barcelona-cum-Shanghai company until you try them! These guys can make you a stunning red cashmere and wool coat (or, you know, your preferred style) tailored to your every need £129.
It is all made-to-measure and from home! During the buying process, you are given written and photographic instruction regarding the measurements needed, which can all be done via measuring tape. They even e-mailed me to confirm my waist to hip measurements were correct to eleminate mishaps (because in fact, I have Kardashian syndrome). They can offer such low prices because they have eliminated most fixed costs (e.g., retail stores, warehouses, …).
This godsend of a company – Tailor4less – sells worldwide and, therefore, can send worldwide with DHL Express in 2 weeks. This includes their suits, shirts, blazers, pants, skirts, accessories and menswear as well. I’m really thinking about buying a brown suit. I just really want a brown suit.
