With all the collab madness going on these days, it's necessary to keep tabs on each one to differentiate the lazy from the worthwhile. Madison Avenue Spy recently conducted a spot check on the Rachel Roy x Macy's collection at the Herald Square flagship and was duly impressed. Browsing through the goods, she found a leather motorcycle jacket with puffed shoulders (comparing to a Rick Owens meets Rachel Roy) for $249 and a Chanel meets Balmain tweed jacket for $149. Even better, Macy's is running a 15% off sale on the collection through April 4th. To drive the collab madness point home, Madison Avenue Spy has provided us with a link to a hilariously terrifying video of the first day of the Sonia Rykiel for H&M collection. The mob scene makes the running of the bulls seem like a yoga class. [Madison Avenue Spy]
