Madonna, H&M Offer New Collection

With the forthcoming "M by Madonna" collection, the partnership between global superstar Madonna and global megabrand H&M continues. The women's line -- encompassing tops, lumber jackets, trench coats, blazers, dresses and accessories -- debuts worldwide March 22 in all H&M stores that have women's departments.

For this collection, Madonna worked closely with H&M head of design Margareta van den Bosch, who says the singer was involved "in even the smallest details of every design." The entire collection features a small "M" logo on linings, zippers and buttons.

Madonna and H&M began working together last spring (Billboard, June 24,
2006). At that time, H&M supplied Madonna and her entire Confessions Tour
company (band, stage crew, dancers) with offstage wardrobes during the
trek's run. As part of the deal, Madonna and some members of her entourage
appeared in an H&M ad campaign.
