Some sneaky pictures of M.I.A’s collaborative collection with Versus for Versace have been released today.
The collection, which goes on sale from 16 October, is made up of 19 pieces inspired by the copying of Versace designs, which were then copied by Versace to make new designs… Make sense? Not really, but to be honest what can we really expect from the eccentric rapper?
M.I.A described her confusing concept to WWD magazine:
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 line will consist of men’s and womenswear with noise, the streets and music also cited as influences towards the creation of the range.
