After about a nine-year absence, Anna Sui returns to Macy’s with a Western-inspired capsule collection called Anna Sui x INC International Concepts.
The collection, to be sold at 25 Macy’s stores and on macys.com beginning in early September, is the latest in an ongoing series of designer capsule collections at Macy’s, a strategy considered by the retailer’s chief executive officer Jeff Gennette as a “third bucket” in the pursuit of exclusive merchandise. The department store has in the past collaborated with Karl Lagerfeld, Yigal Azrouël and Giambattista Valli, among other designers. Macy’s also has a well-developed stable of private brands such as INC. Hotel and Alfani, and sells some brands exclusively, such as Tommy Hilfiger sportswear.
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
“The name of the show is GP — giant pockets,” said Karl Lagerfeld pre-show, in his backstage meeting room at @Fendi to Bridget Foley. @Bellahadid was one of the many famous faces who graced the catwalk including @Gigihadid, @Adwoaaboah, and yes, even @Kendalljenner. #wwdfashion

Further proving the logo trend isn’t going anywhere. Link in our bio for more details. #wwdfashion
