Madonna is hoping to go from fashion icon to fashion mogul with her latest endeavor. The pop star and her 13-year-old daughter, Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon, are partnering on a junior fashion line called Material Girl, which will be sold exclusively at Macy's for back-to-school season, and although the clothes won't land in stores until Aug. 3, sketches were released Tuesday.
The line is named after Madonna's 1984 hit song, and there are some similarities to the pop star's 1980s iteration — the (very) short skirt, the corset top, the layered jewelry. But the muse is Lourdes, or Lola as she is known, Madonna's daughter with trainer Carlos Leon.
Material Girl will include apparel, footwear, jewelry and handbags, and items will range from $12 to $40.
The first collection mixes hard and soft elements, "like a tutu dress and studded-combat boots, or an oversized boyfriend sweatshirt with a floral print mini skirt," according to a news release.
From the sketches, the collection doesn't look to be anything wildly new. There's a little Betsey Johnson in the floral dress, a little Versace in the star print, and a little Madonna in the skinny jeans and bustier combo. If anything, the clothes appear overly sophisticated for the demographic.
