WWD was the first to report that M.I.A. designed 19 pieces for Versus Versace. The inspiration behind the capsule collection are the nowadays knock-offs. Isn’t that Ironic? Versace has always been copied and now it’s Versace’s turn to copy the copycats. The collection has the Versace signature all over it. Besides that, the collection is very M.I.A., very street and all of the pieces are covered with prints.
Donatella Versace is very excited about the collection, she told WWD:
“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.”
The collection will be available now online and in select stores.
