Karl Lagerfeld x Macy’s Collection, Cute Dogs, ‘Awkward Black Girl,’ Wigger Day, Chilean Miners, Keyshia Cole’s New Manager

Karl Lagerfeld has done a collection for the US retailer Macy’s:

“The 45 piece collection is comprised of flirty dresses–some feminine and floral, others crisper and more severe–thick tweedy separates (shorts and vests) and faux leather jackets. The simpler black and white dresses with sharp white collars stood out (they seemed the most Chanel-like) but my prediction is that the soft slouchy tees printed with Lagerfeld’s image, priced at $49, will fly off the racks.

‘To me Macy’s is the perfect department store in the US where everybody can find what they’re looking for without ruining their budget,’ Lagerfeld said in a release. The collection is priced between $50 to $170 and goes on sale at 235 Macy’s across the nation and on macys.com on August 31 (set a reminder).” [Fashionista]

Oh, Middle America. A student is suing a high school for celebrating “Wigger Day.” [Jezebel]

Chilean miners, one year later. [WashPo]

Keyshia Cole’s fired her longtime manager Manny Halley and appears to have taken up Kevin Liles, who’s behind Trey Songz. Question: is it Manny’s fault that Key-Key’s last album just didn’t have many great songs? [NeocoleBitchie]
