Madonna launches clothing line for girls
Is Madonna too cool - or not cool enough - for school?
That’s the question teen girls will decide when shopping the pop icon’s debut clothing line this summer.
The Material Girl collection, a design collaboration with Madonna and daughter Lola, will hit Macy’s in August. But sketches released yesterday give a first glimpse into how Madge thinks girls should express themselves.
The line, so says the press release, is intended for the “spontaneous and fearless individual who invents her own fashion trends and is never afraid to make a bold, creative statement.”
But will middle-schoolers - and their moms - declare the midriff-baring top back in vogue? Yikes. Material Girl, with items retailing from $12 to $40, is about “piling on the layers.” In other words, buying more Material Girl.
In addition to clothes, the label will include shoes, handbags and jewelry. But it’s hard to imagine Macy’s selling the pendants and earrings with religious crosses sketched in these early images.
