Macy's unveils Marilyn Monroe retro apparel line

Mar '13
Macy’s unveiled Marilyn Monroe, an apparel collection that re-imagines the style of the greatest icon of the 20th century for the 21st century fashionista. The collection, created by LF USA and Authentic Brands Group, will infuse the actress unrivaled personality and retro styling into flirty and fun garments for the fashion-forward girl.

This March, Marilyn Monroe will launch exclusively in the Mstylelab department at 150 Macy’s stores and online at macys.com. Customers and fans can look forward to an advertising campaign that immortalizes the starlet’s style through iconic photographs alongside the new collection.

"We are thrilled to partner with the retail experts at Macy's to bring to life one of the things Marilyn loved most – fashion," said Nick Woodhouse, president & CMO of Authentic Brands Group. "As one of the world's most famous style icons, it only made sense to create a Marilyn Monroe apparel collection that represents the glamour and beauty that she is known for."

The Marilyn Monroe line embraces silhouettes that fit and flatter, from halter dresses that cinch at the waist to gingham tie-front, button-down tops and pink polka dot denim, evoking a Monroe-esque image. Recreating the icon’s noteworthy personality this spring, Marilyn Monroe is effortless, flirty and ultra-feminine.

Soft blues and pinks highlight a girl-next-door quality, while bold reds and black and white add a sense of allure. Customers can also show their love for Hollywood’s eternal “it” girl by wearing a smiling Marilyn Monroe cropped t-shirt that features the icon in one of two famous poses.

“Marilyn Monroe’s appeal is legendary and Macy’s is excited to launch a collection that draws inspiration from her timeless style,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “This new line takes her unique sensibility, noteworthy silhouettes and colors of the time, and reinvents them for a modern-day Marilyn Monroe that is fun-loving, flirty and not afraid to play with fashion.”

Macy’s Marilyn Monroe advertising campaign takes today’s modern-day Marilyn and sets her against a backdrop of the icon’s most famous photographs. Each image depicts a carefree persona and sassy attire in an updated style that is relevant to today’s customer. The marketing campaign will debut in March issues of fashion magazines as well as in direct mail, online and in-store visual presentations.
