Following in the footsteps of H&M, Target, and J.C Penney, Macy’s is about to sell its first designer collaboration in their stores. The first collection will be designed by Kinder Aggugini, a designer who is a rising star in London, yet relatively unknown to the U.S. (his designs can only be found in New York and Ikram in Chicago). Aggugini was attracted to Macy’s idea of a line that looked off the runway but was still affordable.
The collection, debuting in February, will be priced between $50 and $300 and sold in 250 Macy’s stores. Aggugini’s designs are described as a marriage between Chanel and Sid Vicious, and the collection will include pieces such as silk shorts, cardigans, sleek military jackets, tailored leather jackets, and much more. “The idea is to give it a chic look that feels sexy and edgy, and best of all, you can afford it.” says Aggugini.

Style.com reported that the boho-chic store Anthropologie, owned by Urban Outfitters Inc., will be opening three new concept stores within the year. The first of the three stores to open is an all-accessories boutique that will feature vintage handbags and jewelry, footwear, and engagement rings in Chevy Chase, MD, about 20 minutes from Washington, D.C on Oct 29.
Manhattan will be home of the second store the label will be opening later this year, called Leifsdottir, a Finnish company specializing in “modern, feminine, and effortlessly sophisticated designs,” according to the company’s website. The third concept store opened by Anthropolgie will be a bridal boutique geared toward the bohemian bride, and is set to open “somewhere like Texas, Nashville, or Chicago,” Style.com says.
