Couture for Less: Designer Collaborations

Affordable high fashion at your favorite stores.

Feel luxurious this fall in well-made signature clothing by legendary designers like Lagerfeld, Missoni, and Versace without breaking the bank. It is now possible to get stylish garments designed by these top designers from designer/store collaborations at well-known mainstream stores including Macy’s, Target, and H&M.


Macy’s has scored one of the most influential designers of our time, Karl Lagerfeld (designer for Chanel and Fendi), to design a capsule collection for their “Impulse” department.  This line is reminiscent of Lagerfeld’s style and high fashion clothing.  Within the collection you can find t-shirts, leggings, crocodile print jackets and a stunning tuxedo dress.  Every piece is meant to be versatile, fresh and simple for every girl to find something ultra-chic and fitting of her own personal style.

Starting September 13, until supplies last, is the 400-piece Missoni/Target collaboration.  This partnership includes menswear, women’s wear, children’s wear, home décor, and kitchenware all incorporating Missoni’s signature knitting, zigzags, and mod florals. This collection includes everything necessary for a complete Missoni lifestyle from bobby pins to patio sets.  Check out this collaboration right away as the zig zag rugs, towels, knitted dresses, and lap top cases are a hot commodity among the fashionably crazed!

Both debuts will include menswear, women’s wear, and home décor all reminiscent of Versace’s archive pieces.  Versace’s collaboration with H&M focuses on elaborate well-tailored clothing that will soon be coveted collector’s items.
