Saks has launched its Fall 2023 campaign with a focus on providing customers with inspiration and encouraging self-expression through luxury fashion. The campaign showcases fall fashion and accessories from both iconic brands and emerging designers in unique content on and beyond, including an editorial feature on The Edit, the Saks online editorial hub for fashion news and style inspiration, on Saks’ social media channels, and in Saks’ Fall 2023 Fashion Book. The campaign features diverse talent from various walks of life including model and writer Amber Later; ballet dancer Calvin Royal III; model and activist Marsella Rea; and cellist and composer Patrick Belaga. It was shot on location in iconic neighborhoods and establishments across New York City, including Dimes Square, the Financial District, Hotel Chelsea, and SIXTY Soho by photographer Matthew Sprout, and in-studio at Pier 59 Studios by photographer Erika Long.

Curated Shops

In conjunction with the launch of the fall campaign, the luxury retailer has also introduced Curated Shops on Personality-focused with themes like “Tunnel Walk Looks” and “The Golf Shop,” the groupings help customers find pieces tailored to their unique personalities and lifestyles. Trend-focused Curated Shops like “Understated Luxury” and “Fall’s Trending Styles” allow customers to easily access what’s trending and make of-the-moment styles their own. Occasion-based shops like “Workwear” and “Occasion Wear” help customers find looks for everything on their fall agenda.

The shops will rotate on an ongoing basis on both the women’s and men’s homepages, allowing Saks to tap into what’s trending and provide hyper-specific product recommendations for all customers.

Saks will work with these new podcast partners to create personalized ads in each host’s unique voice to reveal how they discover luxury at Saks.
