Target Announces New Size-Inclusive Women’s Denim Line

Today's fast-moving fashion industry demands an agile, consumer-led retail model, but how do you get there? Join our webinar "Consumer-Led Retail: Optimizing Assortments at Speed" Sept 28th, featuring experts from MakerSights and DTC brand Taylor Stitch.

Denim’s universal appeal is what’s inspiring Target’s new house brand.

The retailer announced Monday the launch of Universal Thread, a women’s lifestyle brand rooted in denim and featuring tops, bottoms and dresses, plus accessories and footwear.

The collection will be available in February with retail prices ranging from $5 to $39.99. Jeans, on average, will cost up to 10 percent lower than Target’s current denim offering.

A first glimpse, Universal Thread reveals dark wash skinnies, split hem jeans with front seams, washed jean jackets and belted button-down jean dresses. The line boasts multiple fits, lengths and rises to accommodate a diverse range of body types size 00-26W.

Universal Thread

Universal Thread is part of Target’s ambitious plan to reinvigorate its own brand portfolio. In July, the company announced plans to roll out more than 12 new, Target-only brands with unique point of views.

In an interview on Target’s blog, A Bullseye View, Target executive vice president and chief merchandising officer Mark Tritton said the product line is based on ideas and outfits—not just individual pieces.

“Denim is a part of every woman’s wardrobe, and with fewer options in the marketplace and learnings from the brands we’ve recently launched, we’re excited to bring our guests a lifestyle brand rooted in denim that’s also an amazing everyday value,” Tritton said.
