All in the Family :: Madonna and Daughter to Launch New Line

Madonna and Lourdes both sporting a lacy look at the premiere of "Nine." Mom's is more sophisticated and sleek, while her daughter plays it up a bit with some leather and studs. Image courtesy of celebuzz.

At 13, I remember going through my own fashion faux pas (trucker hats, enough said) and still trying to tame my afro-tastic hair (it was far from polished). Yet for the offspring of celebrity royalty, things are a bit different. Madonna and her barely-teenage daughter, Lourdes, are going to start their own collection for Macy’s. Of course you would expect something of this caliber from the daughter of the Material Girl (which also happens to be the name of the line). Apparently, this girl has a knack for the fashion industry that is turning heads. As Madonna commented, “She also comes to my photo and video shoots, pulls outfits together and gives her input to a lot of my fashion-designer friends. Whether it's Marc Jacobs or Stella McCartney, they always ask her what she thinks.” This seems to be the first fashion-forward step of many for the young designer.

I’m really impressed by Lourdes’ initiative in starting the line and her influence that she has commanded in its development. Although there are no photos released of how the line will look, the feel of it is, “inspired by kids she sees in hip-hop and ballet classes, European influences, bands she listens to.” It will be available in late July, just in time for some back-to-school shopping. Be sure to keep your eyes open for it!
