M.I.A claims her collection collab for Versace Versus was “inspired by the creativity of fashion bootleggers” telling Womens Wear Daily that, “the theme of counterfeits, of those that produce and sell them has always been part of the culture of M.I.A…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.”
M.I.A has previewed the collection in GIF form, true to style which you can check out more of HERE.
The 19-piece collab will be in select stores and online from 16 October 2013.
