Style Alert: M.I.A. x Versus Versace Capsule Collection

M.I.A.'s Versus Versace collection is officially available online!  The vibrant collection, which features pieces for both men and women, was actually inspired by the same Versace fakes that can be found on a Canal Street near you!

“It’s always been part of the M.I.A. culture – to talk about bootlegs, and people that sell them or make them” the singer said, “So when I was approached by Versace, it just seemed like a good idea to take all that and reverse the cycle, get Versace to copy the bootleggers. And then for the bootleggers to copy Versace copying the bootleggers, and just to keep that cycle going. It was just to basically reconnect the cycle in a way that is, I think, only possible through what I can offer Versace in the collaboration. So it was about bringing the concept of M.I.A. and the concept of Versace together.”

The collection ranges from leggings and jeans starting at £120 to jackets costing about £375.  This is pretty reasonably when compared to Versace off-the-rack items.  Check out the collection here and here.
