NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The best season ever begins at Macy’s (NYSE:M), as the retailer kicks off its new Celebrate Summer campaign this May. Bringing together the best in fashion and home for pool parties, road trips and everything in between, the seasonal celebration also features limited-edition collaborations, CR by Cynthia Rowley and I.N.C + Popsicle®. Also this month, Macy’s Fashion Pass benefits the Y’s summer camp programs, and in-store events encourage customers to experience the best of summer in their local store.
I.N.C + Popsicle®
I.N.C International Concepts has partnered with The Original Brand Popsicle® for a limited-edition capsule, sold exclusively at Macy’s. The bright and bold collection features playful prints inspired by the iconic Popsicle® brand and is comprised of women’s, men’s and young girls’ clothing, as well as women’s accessories. The collection is anchored by an all-over Popsicle® pattern that features artistic interpretations of favorite pop flavors like the Firecracker® and Creamsicle®, and brings summertime fun to life through fashion.
Pool Party and Beach Looks
Summer calls for beach-side and pool-side shindigs, and Macy’s has everything you need to look fabulous. Rainbow-hued two-piece bathing suits and electric macramé one-pieces set the color setting to high for fun-in-the-sun adventures. Chic cover-ups with exuberant prints, tassels, and lace and cut-out details are statement-making staples that perfectly transition from day to night. Novelty tees with cheeky bon mots and cool patches layer perfectly with denim cut-offs and fray-hemmed jeans for when the sun sets. Finish off your festive looks with pompom-bedecked wicker purses and rhinestone-encrusted slides for an easy, breezy, yet funky take on summer style.
The pool float and novelty beach towel are must-haves for summer 2017, complete with fruit motifs and colorful graphics. Martha Stewart Collection and Lacoste feature plush beach towels with playful patterns such as pineapples, flamingos, ice cream cones, stripes and bold geometric designs.
Road Trip Fashion
Concerts, festivals, diners, bazaars—all stops along a great summer road trip. For those seasonal jaunts, Macy’s has all the looks to keep you comfortable, yet trendy throughout. Denim and tees are huge for the road tripper this summer, but with a twist. Updates to the Americana motif combine with patchwork and ripped-and-repaired denim to achieve an aesthetic perfect for the road.
CR by Cynthia Rowley
Macy’s has partnered with designer Cynthia Rowley for a limited-edition line, CR by Cynthia Rowley. The high-spirited collection taps into the cheerful and vivacious essence at the core of the celebrated designer’s eponymous brand. The limited-time collection is a celebration of summer that includes tops, skirts, pants, dresses and jackets rendered in wispy fabrics and fanciful prints to match the season. Perfect for beachside dates, rooftop fetes, and everything in between, the collection embraces Cynthia Rowley’s signature joie de vivre that’s perfect for the season.
You’re Invited: The Best in Summer Entertaining
Whether hosting a summer block party or backyard bash, Macy’s is the ultimate destination for everything summer entertaining this season. Tablescapes will showcase an explosion of the color wheel this summer with bright candy hues. Fiesta offers place settings, open stock dinnerware and serving pieces in a full spectrum of colors – from cobalt and shamrock to scarlet and tangerine. These rainbow brights are sure to be a hit at summer gatherings, and are great for everyday use, too.
Melamine tableware is a must-have this summer and Certified International brings a wide assortment of dinnerware and serveware in vibrant floral and checkered patterns. Complete your table with acrylic drinkware by Martha Stewart Collection, including highball glasses and pitchers, which are a great choice for carefree entertaining. For those on burger, hot dog and kebab duty, grills by Char-Broil are a party essential for feeding a crowd, whether large or small.
To host a summer evening soirée in style, Thirstystone at Macy’s offers a range of beautiful serveware, such as onyx marble cheeseboards with copper detailing, acacia wood and marble coasters, and wood serving boards with chevron patterns.
“Macy’s Celebrate Summer campaign features all the must-haves for the season,” said Roberson Keffer, Macy’s vice president / Fashion Director for Home. “Melamine tableware, novelty beach towels and colorful dinnerware will highlight any occasion to entertain from indoor to out.”
