Versace Confirms M.I.A. Capsule Collection for Versus

Versace has announced a new capsule collection with singer/songwriter M.I.A for its Versus label, confirming fashion rumours for the last year.

The 19-piece collection includes kaleidoscopic prints, inspired by the bootleg Versace merchandise the singer (pictured below) found in London markets as a teenager.

Versace said versions of its famous emblems, from the Versace logo to the interlocking Greek key, are blown up and clashed together in graphic prints with the energy of the street. Prints of gold medallions have the frenetic visual assault of a bootleg market stall. It includes pieces for both men and women, from T-shirts and printed jeans to silk shirts, jersey dresses and military-inspired outerwear.

“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. The collection is everything that I love about the new Versus Versace – it’s fast, loud, unafraid, and brings together the worlds of music and fashion. I can’t wait to see people wearing the collection.” Donatella Versace

The collection launches online on October 16. Visit www.versusversace.com for more details.
