'Material Girl' Junior Collection to debut this fall

MG ICON, the newly formed joint venture between Madonna and Iconix Brand Group, Inc., announced its first direct-to-retail license agreement with Macy's, Inc. for the 'Material Girl' collection.
'Material Girl' is a newly created, fast-fashion junior collection that will launch exclusively in approximately 200 Macy's stores and online at www.macys.com in August 2010 for the back-to-school season.
As part of the direct-to-retail agreement, Macy's will have the opportunity to launch additional brands with MG Icon in the future.
The 'Material Girl' collection was inspired and designed in collaboration with Madonna and her daughter Lourdes, along with Iconix Brand Group's in-house fashion department. In addition to the back-to-school apparel collection, 'Material Girl' will also launch in multiple categories including footwear, handbags and jewelry. The collection will retail from $12.00 to $40.00, comparative with pricing strategies at junior specialty stores. The strategy for growth will include additional categories in the lifestyle and beauty sectors, including fragrance, beginning 2011 as well as a rollout into additional Macy's stores.
Neil Cole, CEO and Chairman, Iconix, stated, 'We are excited to announce the first in a series of new brands that will be developed under our partnership with Madonna. 'Material Girl' has a powerful retail partner in Macy's and we look forward to working together to deliver an innovative launch for our consumers.'
'We believe that 'Material Girl' will be a dynamic exclusive brand for Macy's, and we look forward to working with Madonna, Lourdes and the Iconix team. Madonna is a fashion icon who can bring a new dimension to our juniors customer,' said Jeff Gennette, Macy's chief merchandising officer. ''Material Girl' will enhance the excitement of fast fashion at Macy's.'
