Rapper M.I.A has always been a fan of Versace but now she gets to take her love a step further as feisty female rapper has created a 19-piece range for the brand, which includes T-shirts, jeans, and silk shirts (among other items) for both men and women. The collections October 16 release will be celebrated with a GIF campaign projected on East London’s markets. M.I.A., whose new album ‘Matangi’ drops on November 5, was inspired by knock off Versace clothes that she found in London markets as a teenager which is such a reinvent look right now , loud, proud and 90’s.
‘I love the energy of the street, so when M.I.A. suggested we use bootlegs of Versace, I thought it was such an incredible idea,” Donatella Versace said of the new collection
In the release M.I.A. said ‘Versace designs have always been bootlegged, now it’s Versace bootlegging the bootleg for the bootleggers to bootleg the bootleg. This is to keep that cycle going.
Were very excited to see what the collection hold and will be brining it to you as soon as it drops.
