Material girl, indeed.

A line of clothing co-designed by pop queen Madonna went on sale around the world Thursday in branches of Swedish fashion retailer Hennes & Mauritz.

Pieces in the M by Madonna collection, co-designed by H&M design chief Margareta van den Bosch, include a leather trench coat, sequined shift dresses, cream-colored calf-length pants and matching cropped jackets.

In Britain, the items are priced between $16 and $295.

“I am a Madonna fan but the reason I am buying the clothes is that they are very nice and feminine and the prices are very reasonable,” said Magda Grabowik, 32, as she lined up to pay for a coat, jacket and dresses at H&M’s Oxford Street store.

Slideshow: Celebrity Sightings Madonna said working on the fashion line had been “an exciting and new creative challenge.”

“I’m happy with the results and look forward to wearing M by Madonna along with the rest of the world,” the 48-year-old singer said in a statement.

H&M said the collection reflected Madonna’s “timeless, unique and always glamorous style.”

Stockholm-based H&M has more than 1,300 stores in 24 countries.
