Here you have it, ladies and gents: M.I.A.’s Versus Versace collection is officially on the market.
The unisex collection features “graphic prints with street energy . Prints with gold medallions are reminiscent of the frenzy typical of the market stands,” said a Versace spokesperson.
Of the new initiative, Donatella Versace noted, “I adore the energy of the street, so when M.I.A. proposed to expose the issue of counterfeit Versace pieces by creating a collaboration inspired by these items, I thought it was an incredible idea.”
“The collection represents all that I love of the new Versus Versace: It’s fast , it’s noisy, it’s brazen and it blends the world of music with that of fashion. I can’t wait to see it worn.”
M.I.A. added, “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.”
