We learned long ago to stop trying to predict Karl Lagerfeld’s next move. Indeed, his newest project, a capsule collection called Impulse for department-store chain Macy’s, might come as a surprise-but the Kaiser is nothing if not a high-low genius. Available at select stores and online, the collection comprises 45 limited-edition pieces that riff on his practised Chanel style via tweeds, little jackets and cheeky tees, all under $170. Canada’s own Coco Rocha plays cheap-and-chic muse, shot by who else but Lagerfeld himself.
