NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Macy’s introduces its new private brand, On 34th, a women’s apparel and accessories collection of classics made for modern life. Designed for women, by women, the collection features wardrobe staples like the perfect pant and special pieces like the sequin skirt, to make her smile with enough “wow” to inspire women to escape the ordinary and run their world. On 34th is the first new brand unveiled as part of the company’s reimagined customer-centric private brands portfolio. On 34th will be available for purchase at Macy’s stores, online at Macys.com, and through the Macy’s mobile app starting on August 17th with On 34th shoes launching spring 2024.
“Macy’s is thrilled to officially introduce our newest private brand, On 34th. We have spent the last two years listening to customers and creating a brand that reflects how women want to dress for modern life,” says Nata Dvir, Macy’s Chief Merchandising Officer. “The heartbeat and voice of the customer is infused in all that we do and we know that our customer loves great brands that deliver on our promise of quality, style and value. Through our private brand reimagination, one of our five Macy’s, Inc. growth vectors, we have the opportunity to reinforce our legacy while evolving and refreshing our portfolio.”
Macy’s offers a compelling blend of market and private brands that empowers its customers to own their personal style. Macy’s private brand portfolio represented roughly 16% of brand sales in fiscal 2022 and historically it has been as high as approximately 20%, a level the company believes can be achieved longer-term. The company’s private brand reimagination is built upon three key pillars—brand stewardship, design with intention and executed with attention, and a meaningful value equation. Macy’s private brand portfolio reimagination includes adding, refreshing and replacing brands and will run through 2025. On 34th is the first of four new brands that will be introduced as part of this reimagination.
“On 34th was created with inspirational and modern design, informed by the voice of the customer, and built for real life. This new brand is designed by women for women who run their world, with confidence and joy,” says Emily Erusha-Hilleque, Macy’s SVP of Private Brands. “The launch of On 34th is an important milestone in Macy’s journey to elevate and reimagine our private brand portfolio which is designed with intention and executed with attention. We are developing unique and relevant product design that is distinctively aligned to brand DNA and infused with multiple points of inspiration, data, and the intuition of a talented team. All in service of fostering brand love for Macy’s.”
Redefining Classic Wardrobe
On 34th is where real style meets real life. The brand is defining the new classic wardrobe, introducing enough “wow” to inspire the modern woman to escape the ordinary and run her world. The collection is her wardrobe BFF, ensuring she stays relevant, confident and cool – all while delivering outstanding value through pricing, design and exceptional quality.
The collection has over 750 SKUs and over 250 unique styles, designed to be easily mixed and matched to create over 1,000 outfits. Prices range from $18.50 to $299.50 and sizing ranges from XXS to 4X and 0 to 26W.
The customer’s voice is at the center of Macy’s private brand reimagination. For the last two years, Macy’s has conducted extensive research, with over 100,000 online surveys, 35 days of digital community engagement and hundreds of hours of in-store fit research and shop-alongs. By listening to customers and putting them at the center of its strategy, Macy’s will deliver great fit, quality and compelling value.
On 34th reflects Macy’s research into how women want to dress for modern life – which is busy, full of different events and requires tremendous versatility.
