M.I.A for Versus is Happening!


Drake isn’t the only one rapping Versace’s praises—coincidentally the fashion hosue played the Canadian rapper’s ode to them during their Milan show—M.I.A has a new fashion project with the Italian fashion house.

“I have a collaboration coming out in two weeks,” she said backstage at Balenciaga of Donatella Versace’s second line, Versus. London designer Jonathan William Anderson of J.W. Anderson had the honor of previously interpreting the brand in the absence of Christopher Kane,and we thought that Anthony Vaccarello was up next. But we must say M.I.A is a nice surprise!

This isn’t Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam’s first foray into fashion. She was the face of Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer ’08 line and now, her Versus collaboration! She’s been talking about this project for quite some time now, so we’re anxious to see how her style influences this line.
