When Macy’s entered the designer collaboration market, they did so with a vengeance: in the span of just five designers, Macy’s Impulse snagged one of fashion’s high priests, Karl Lagerfeld, and the outlandishly talented (though less famous) Giambattista Valli. The department store has also worked with Japanese Vogue character Anna Dello Russo, though we’re still confused as to what they collaborated on.
Anyway, although we were already psyched to the point of hyperventilation about the Valli collection (everyone in the office will fight Thunderdome-style for that leopard coat), they’ve just announced the next Impulse collaborator:
The amazing, underrated, genius-of-draping Doo.Ri Chung.
And it sounds great, according to WWD:
Her Macy’s collection will feature a lot of what she’s known for, like draping, as well as jersey and detailed knitwear, and art-inspired prints. There are also short and maxi-length dresses, leggings, blouses, and trenchcoats, among other pieces. “I am always surprised women really gravitate toward my trench coats,” Chung said, though they seem to have become one of her signatures. Prices on the collection range from $39 to $159. Designing for Macy’s, Chung said, was “pretty labor intensive, involving a lot of elements.”
The collection will be available at over 200 Macy’s locations come mid-February.
