See M.I.A.'s Print-Heavy Bootleg-Inspired Versus Versace Collection

Sri Lankan-British rapper M.I.A. has just unveiled her new collection is collaboration with Versus Versace and it appears that her inspiration behind the line has come from an unusual place: bootleg Versace. She says she was inspired by the many fake prints and designs found on the streets and wanted to put her own spin on things:

"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."  

The 19-piece collaboration will be available online and in select stores on October 16th. The rapper also created some promotional images with friends snapped at London markets. Donatella Versace commented that she loves the street vibe in the new designs:

"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."
