M.I.A. x Versus: Accept No Imitations

-------

MIA x VersusIt’s official. Versace and M.I.A. have confirmed a nineteen-piece collaborative collection for the house’s Versus line. The musician follows in the footsteps of J.W. Anderson, who unveiled his collection for the brand back in May. In an attempt to “invert the circle” of copycat fashion, the singer drew inspiration from the concept of counterfeiting—and Donatella is on board. “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,” she told WWD. No word yet on where Paris fashion week’s Vaccarello for Versus rumors came from, but the M.I.A. x Versus collection will go on sale October 16.
