Versace Rebellion – Collaborating with Versace’s Verus line, musician M.I.A. created a 19-piece capsule collection set to hits stores on October 16th. Inspired by the bootleg Versace merchandise M.I.A. found on the streets of London as a teenager, the collection is meant to be seasonless for a youthful audience. “It’s always been part of the M.I.A. culture – to talk about bootlegs, and people that sell them or make them. When I was approached by Versace, it seemed like a good idea to take that and reverse the cycle. 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.” says the musician.
