High fashion, meet mass market! London-based designer Kinder Aggugini, who has designed for top houses like Versace and Calvin Klein, is kicking off Macy’s new rotating capsule collections, pairing top designers with the department store to create high-end but affordable limited edition lines. “The fabrics are real, and there’s a high quality of workmanship,” Aggugini told PEOPLE of his collection at the January 26 launch party in N.Y.C. “Normally you wouldn’t see that [detail] in a line like this, but they were like, ‘Let’s do it up!'” The designer says he was inspired by the way young women in London alter their mom’s vintage clothing, or wear it with tough, modern pieces — and he guarantees that every girl will fall in love with something in the line. “The collection is so diverse that it will appeal to a great range of girls, and every girl will like one piece for sure,” he says. The line will hit Macy’s stores and macys.com Feb. 15. -Alex Apatoff
