Sri Lankan-British Grammy award-winning rapper, singer and artist M.I.A. has collaborated with fashion brand Versus Versace to create a 19-piece collection that is inspired by actual Versace knock-offs that the singer has seen on the streets of London.

The 19-piece collection features men’s and women’s clothing, which includes tees, dresses, silk shirts, printed jeans, and outerwear. The pieces also feature various mixes of the brand’s classic prints and brand images.

The artist was quoted as saying the new line is a creative way of continuing the cycle of designing and copying.

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 collection will be available in physical and online stores on October 16th.
