In the latest game of fashion musical chairs, the Chloe and Karl Lagerfeld collections will be moving -- out of Bendel's and into Bloomingdale's. "We're delighted. We've been after these collections for a long time and now we have finally got them," said Michael Gould, chairman and ceo of Bloomingdale's, after the Herve Leger show. He said Lagerfeld and Chloe will be sold in the store's New York flagship, as well as Boca Raton and Chestnut Hill, but declined to say how much space the two lines will be given.
"They'll get the appropriate space with a full marketing program," Gould stressed. "I believe that they appreciated our commitment to strong lines, our merchandising and excellent sell-through."
When asked about Chloe and Karl Lagerfeld pulling their collections out of Bendel's, Louise Mackenzie, vice president and general merchandise manager of the store, said, "I really can't comment on that. You will have to take that up with Susan Falk." Falk, Bendel's president, could not be reached for comment. Executives from Chloe and Lagerfeld were also unavailable for comment.
