Target is introducing a new women’s lifestyle brand next month.

Last year, Target announced plans to roll out more than 12 new, only-at-Target brands, which includes A New Day, Goodfellow & Co., Project 62 and Hearth & Hand with Magnolia. Next month, Target is introducing Universal Thread, a women’s lifestyle brand that’s grounded in denim and features tops, dresses, accessories and shoes.

Prices range from $5 to $39.99. Mark Tritton, Target’s executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, answered some questions about the brand:

Why the focus on denim?

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. This brand is all about ideas and outfits, not just items. It includes apparel, footwear and accessories that are sure to become guest favorites.
