Emblematic interlocking extravaganza Greek keys, visuals of gold medallions and Versace’s logo are blown up and clashed together in graphic prints to create street style infused T-shirts, jeans, silk shirts, jersey dresses and military-inspired outerwear. M.I.A. x Versus Versace is available online and in selected stores.

Mathangi “Maya” Arulpragasam better known by her stage name M.i.a., is a British singer, lyricist, painter and official. The moniker “M.i.a.” is both a play on her own name and a reference to the abbreviated structure for Missing in Action. Her structures join segments of electronic, move, elective, hip bob and world music. Arulpragasam began her business in 2000 as a visual skilled worker, film maker and inventor in west London before beginning her recording calling in 2002. Since moving to notability in right on time 2004 for her singles “Sunshowers” and “Galang”, plotting in the UK and Canada and touching base at number 11 on the Billboard Hot Dance Singles Sales in the US, she has been designated for an Academy Award, two Grammy Awards and the Mercury Prize.
