Fashion Bite: M.I.A. Teams Up With Versace For Capsule Collection

October 7, 2013 § Leave a comment

MIA-x-Versus

M.I.A. is known for her fun fashion choices just as much as she’s known for her music, so it comes as no surprise that the “Come Walk With Me” singer is working on a collaboration with none other than Versace!

The artist is creating a 19-piece capsule collection for Versace’s sister line Versus, that plays as a riff on infamous knockoff Versace pieces that she’s found across the globe – which is a pretty amazing feat seeing how counterfeit clothing pose a serious threat to luxury brands like Versace.

“The theme of counterfeits, of those that produce and sell them has always been part of the culture of M.I.A.,” she said. “When I was contacted by Versace, it seemed a great idea to invert the circle. Versace’s designs have always been copied, now it’s Versace that copies the copies, so those that copy must copy the copies. So this will continue.”

The collection will be made available on October 16, just a few weeks before the artist’s fourth album Matangi drops on November 5.

Check out a few teaser photos after the jump!
