After a recent announcement of a collaborative collection between M.I.A. and Versus Versace followed by a confirmation from the luxury Italian brand, we now get to take our first look at the results. For the 19-piece collection, the Grammy Award-winning artist and Versus Versace created kaleidoscopic prints inspired by bootleg Versace merchandise found by M.I.A. in London markets as a teenager. New iterations of iconic Versace designs, from the Versace logo to the interlocking Greek key, are inflated and juxtaposed in graphic prints that echo the energy of the street.
The collaboration includes pieces for both men and women, from T-shirts and printed jeans to silk shirts, jersey dresses and military-inspired outerwear. The collection will be available online and in select stores beginning October 16.
