Rumours are flying around that controversial UK artist M.I.A will be collaborating with Versace. The rumours stemmed from a lecture at the Modern Art Museum on Sunday where the entire audience accidently got a sneak peek at M.I.A’s desktop where folders named ‘Versace Prints’, ‘Bootleg Versace,’ and ‘Versace Outlines’ were stored. Suspicious much?
Whilst the nature of the collaboration is not yet known, the titles of her folders suggest she has turned her hand to designing. If you’re wondering whether M.I.A has any real fashion credentials aside from her slightly wacky dress sense; she does. Having studied at Central Saint Martin’s College, modelled for Marc by Marc Jacobs and released a limited edition Okley Run line that was sold during New York Fashion Week in 2008, she is not a complete fashion newbie.
Rapper A$AP Rocky recently collaborated with urban e-boutique Karmaloop to create a series of t-shirts and tank tops for both girls and guys.
