Just in time for the holidays, and that is precisely the intent, Macy’s has announced that Giambattista Valli for Macy’s Impulse is on the way to Macy’s stores on Oct. 26th. My spies tell me that all pieces will be priced under $150.00.   Macy’s has released a look book for the collection and as you can see from the photos this is traditional holiday party wear.  The colors are similar to last year’s Lanvin H&M collection with bright pink and red dresses in the mix.  Of course, there are plenty of LBDs (Little Black Dresses too)  in updated flapper styles with drop waists.  There are also leopard print dresses and color block dresses with the leopard print.  My favorite so far, based on the look book, is this strapless red print maxi dress.

The collection of cocktail dresses is made up of 17 pieces which I think is very smart on Macy’s part.  A smaller collection reduces inventory and should help sales in store.  The 45 piece Lagerfeld collection is still to be found in most Macy’s stores.  A few pieces of Lagerfeld are now on sale at Macy’s online and I think more of the pieces will be soon. The tweed coatis now reduced to $99.00 from $169.00.
