    Default Miley Cyrus + Max Azria sign deal with Wal-Mart!

    Max Azria, at walmart? Here's the WWD news:


    Miley Cyrus, the teen sensation whose alter ego, Hannah Montana, stars in her own TV show and concerts, is teaming up with Max Azria, chairman, designer and chief executive officer of BCBG Max Azria Group, to create a junior line for Wal-Mart called Miley Cyrus and Max Azria, sources said.

    The trend-right collection will bow in all Wal-Mart stores and on walmart.com in early August, the sources said, adding the line will include tops, pants, graphic T-shirts and shoes, priced under $20.

    A Wal-Mart Stores Inc. spokeswoman could not be reached for comment, while a spokesman for Max Azria declined comment. Cyrus has been a fan of Azria’s designs for some time. She wore a short Hervé Léger by Max Azria dress in April to the U.K. premiere of “Hannah Montana: The Movie,” and for the 2009 Grammy Awards, Cyrus donned a custom Hervé Léger by Max Azria black gown.

    Azria is said to have developed a rapport with Cyrus in the course of dressing her for events and eventually became acquainted with her parents — her father, country star Billy Ray Cyrus, who appears on the “Hannah Montana” series, and mother, Tish.

    The Miley Cyrus line is the second major teen country star Wal-Mart has linked with in the last few months. The retailer already carries a line of cami dresses by country sensation Taylor Swift under the label L.E.I. by Taylor Swift, which is exclusive to Wal-Mart. Other junior collections offered at the store include “America’s Next Top Model” T-shirts and sweatpants; No Boundaries athletic shorts and tank tops, and Op smocked jersey dresses and tube dresses. In the past, Wal-Mart has offered Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s tween fashion line and Stuff by Hilary Duff.

    The Wal-Mart deal marks Max Azria’s second foray into mass market territory and gives him agreements with the world’s two largest retailers — Wal-Mart and Carrefour. In 2006, Azria signed a deal to design a women’s ready-to-wear collection for the French retailer, which operates hypermarkets in France, Greece, Spain, Belgium, Italy and Portugal. The collection Tex by Max Azria launched for the fall-winter 2007 season. At the time, industry sources familiar with the arrangement said the deal, which ends Dec. 31, 2011, has a minimum guaranteed volume of 1 billion euros, or about $1.3 billion, over the course of the contract, plus escalations per season.

    The BCBG Max Azria Group is a diversified organization. Its portfolio of 22 brands includes BCBGeneration, Max and Cleo and Manoukian, among others, with price points from less than $20 for Miley Cyrus and Max Azria at Wal-Mart, to $3,000 for a Hervé Léger dress at Bergdorf Goodman.

    While Azria has some experience working with large retailers, industry observers said, “The difference with the line now [Miley Cyrus and Max Azria] is that this is truly a junior line” and that it will be designed with a celebrity, Cyrus. Hence, the collection will bear both their names.

    Cyrus, who will be touring at the end of the year for her new album, “Breakout,” to be released July 22, will wear BCBG Max Azria styles. Her tour will reportedly be sponsored by Wal-Mart.

    The latest collection continues Wal-Mart’s recent mining of popular culture as it relates to teens and has contributed to the discounter being able to consistently outpace its competition. Following the title’s release on March 21, “Twilight” set a one-day DVD sales record at Wal-Mart, which was one of several key retailers and Wal-Mart also has sold “Twilight”-themed T-shirts.

    That's totally disturbing, not to mention trashy. I hate, hate Walmart. I've never really liked BCBG because they were always knocking off other designers and a few years behind.

    Probably because BCBG is already on the cheap end, already made in China (like most of Wal-mart's merchandise) and they can mass produce like they do everything else.

    I don't think Target would ever buy a Max Azria line combined with Miley Cyrus.

    I think it could be cool. I'll be taking my daughter in to see it. I NEVER shop at Wal-Mart though... tacky tacky. FYI- Many significant designers manufacture their clothing lines in China including Tahari, Vince and most mid to upper mid level designers. There are tacky mfgs there and very upscale, high quality mfgs also. In fact, many of the cheaper lines are moving their production to places like Indonesia for cheaper labor as the Chinese are developing a stronger workers rights position in their workforce. There are stories of higher talented individuals actually moving to new factories for higher pay and benefits....sound familiar?
