The vaunted Medusa head that’s graced the chest hairs of drug lords and rappers alike for decades is now switching up its swagger and going the way of its own bootlegged designs. With the help of M.I.A. and by way of its diffusion line, Versus, Versace is releasing a collection inspired by the designs used by knockoffs of the brand from years past. Click through to peep the GIF-happy presentation of the line. And please refrain from playing that Versace song in the background so as to keep all levels of cornballness at a minimum.
M.I.A. herself had this to say regarding the capsule collection: “When I was contacted by Versace, it seemed a great idea to invert the circle. Versace’s designs have always been copied, now it’s Versace that copies the copies, so those that copy must copy the copies. So this will continue.”
Just smile and nod, readers. Smile and nod.
You can cop the collection on 10/16/13 at select retailers and Versus’ online shop.
