If Versace’s official confirmation of an upcoming capsule collection with Grammy award-winning singer/rapper M.IA. didn’t get you excited enough, the first images of the collaboration have just been released by the Italian fashion house.

Jumping on the all-over-print trend, the M.I.A. designed 19-piece Versus collection, which is slated to be released on Oct.16, is full of busy kaleidoscope prints inspired by fake Versace merchandise knock-offs seen on the streets of London.

In a press release, M.I.A. explains the reason behind her knock-off inspiration, saying, “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.”

Perhaps if someone can make cheap look chic, it would be M.I.A., right?
