Joining the racks of Rachel Roy, BCBG Max Azria, Ralph Lauren RLX, Ed Hardy (?), Matthew Williamson and (allegedly) soon Giambattista Valli, Karl Lagerfeld‘s Impulse capsule collection is set to launch in 235 Macy’s stores August 31st and will feature 45 limited edition styles ranging from $50 to $170.

“Depending on customer reaction” — my guess, people are gonna freak the fuck out —  the Lagerfeld for Impulse collection will be available for six to eight weeks and will focus on “statement jackets, tweeds, novelty fabrics, and dresses,” according to Macy’s chief merchandising officer Jeff Gennette.
