Madonna’s Doing a Clothing Line With Christian Audigier…
Madonna’s collaborating with Ed Hardy on a fashion line, according to the Mirror. Known for its tattoo prints, the label is owned by Christian Audigier, who’s also designing an outfit for Michael Jackson’s comeback tour. Working with the two of them at once must be a real headache treat. Audigier approached Madonna about the line after he spotted her wearing Ed Hardy. The Mirror reports:
He offered a six-figure deal and put on a private catwalk show to inspire Madonna, telling her to “Express Yourself”.
But he needn’t have worried. Her Madgesty, 50, thinks Christian is a true fashion innovator and jumped at the chance to work with him.
We’ll have to agree to disagree with Madge on that. But it’s good to know that if we went up to her and said “express yourself” she wouldn’t slug us. Her designs include tattoo-inspired T-shirts and diamante-encrusted bodices (Pussycat Dolls, control yourselves). We’re glad to hear veering young doesn’t stop with her love life.
So here’s a fashion collab we never saw coming: Rapper Common has partnered with Microsoft to create a clothing line called Softwear.
Microsoft’s soft launch party for Softwear, the company’s new line of graphic tees designed by hip-hop artist Common and “inspired by the 1980s when both Microsoft and hip-hop really came of age.” The software giant’s foray into fashion is intended to conjure a sense of nostalgic hipness around the brand, while reacting to the “I’m a PC” stereotype made popular by Apple. The shirts (which hit select stores in the US on Dec 15) incorporate old DOS iconography, geek vernacular, and a retro-futuristic aesthetic into some surprisingly stylish designs. Softwear’s two lines – Classic and Common’s designs – can be previewed at Microsoft’s Softwear site where viewers can also learn about the impetus and story behind the concept, narrated by Common.
In the words of Common, shirts that make you go, “Man, this is incredible artwork and I want to wear this and I want it to reflect beauty, creativity and humanity…look fly but say something, too. So some of the shirts got messages, some of it bring…all of it got a purpose.”
The t-shirts are expected to retail for around $32 a pop.
