“We are thrilled to be partnering with Macy’s to launch an apparel line that
is inspired by global icon Marilyn Monroe,” said Nick Woodhouse, president and
chief marketing officer at Authentic Brands Group. “The new collection draws
inspiration from Marilyn’s timeless beauty and renowned sense of fashion.
Marilyn Monroe was a legendary trendsetter and we are excited to have her
incredible style accessible to today’s fashionistas.”

From fashion icon to big-screen starlet, Marilyn Monroe has been immortalized
with a new and exclusive line of apparel aptly named Marilyn Monroe. Comprised
of silhouettes that fit and flatter, the collection embraces Monroe’s shapely
figure, while paying homage to her most popular fashion moments. From halter
dresses that cinch at the waist to gingham tie-front, button-down tops and
pink polka dot denim, the line evokes a Monroe-esque image, made especially
for the modern day Marilyn. Recreating the star’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. The collection
retails from $29 to $89, offering affordable fashion to girls who want to look
confident, feminine and fun.

“Marilyn is a true American icon whose timeless style and bubbly personality
are constantly replicated in today’s pop culture,” said Martine Reardon,
Macy’s chief marketing officer. “What better way to honor the legendary star
than by creating a line that glorifies her enduring appeal. Her beauty, wit
and globally recognized charm have been remade into a collection for the
Macy’s customer who is modern, fun-loving and wants to reinvent herself
through fashion.”

To further enhance customers’ shopping experiences, Macy’s has created
specially-made Marilyn Monroe shops within the Mstylelab department to bring
Marilyn to life in a visual way that aligns with the young, flirty DNA of both
Marilyn and the collection. The Marilyn Monroe shops are meant to represent a
storied narrative, with every design element taking its cue from something
authentic to her, including filmstrip fixturing with two famous Marilyn
quotes, a pink, oval table trimmed in diamonds inspired by her personal
dressing table and white high-gloss mannequins made to be in Marilyn’s iconic
hands on hip pose. In addition, ballet bars curved just like her famous
figure, imagery of her iconic lips as a graphic stamp and inspirational
“Marilynisms” fill the shop. A video montage was even crafted from her most
gorgeous images and videos, all used to romance the experience.

The Estate of Marilyn Monroe is a subsidiary of and managed by Authentic
Brands Group. For more information about the Marilyn Monroe collection
exclusively at Macy’s, please visit macys.com/pressroom. Macy’s customers can
