Check out the mockups of of M.I.A.'s Versace collection!

We imagined something flashy and edgy when we got more deets on M.I.A.'s collab with Versace, and it looks like we’ll be getting exactly that!

Versus has finally released photos of the 19 piece collection inspired by London knockoffs, and it's definitely an graphic feast for the eyes!

The bold patterns incorporate traditional Versace motifs, including the Medusa head and Greek frieze, and kinda reminds us of the label’s H&M collection from two years ago. However, M.I.A.'s bootleg take definitely has more of a "street energy" vibe, just as the singer intended.

No word on pricing yet, but you can check out the new Donatella-approved looks (below)!

Will U be scrambling for the brand's latest garb on October 16th???

A few weeks ago, M.I.A. revealed that her Versace collection will be out this month, but she didn’t divulge many details about the collaboration.

M.I.A. and Versace have been working on a secret project together!

Took her long enough!

Almost a year after unintentionally revealing what was supposed to be a "top secret" collaboration with Versace, M.I.A. will finally show off the fruits of her labor next month!

The wouldn't divulge much at the Balenciaga show on Thursday, but did say:

"I have a collaboration with Versace coming out in two weeks."

Tease!

The most likely scenario is that the project is for Donatella Versace’s second line, Versus, since she’s been inviting a variety of creatives to work on it with her.

Can’t wait to see it!!

ZOMG! AH-Mazing!

Donatella Versace and her musical muse M.I.A. are collaborating!

The controversial singer let the Versace cat out on Sunday at MoMA’s PS1 event where she flashed her computer screen, which had "Versace prints," "Versace Outlines" and "Bootleg Versace" folders sitting on the desktop.

Rather than denying the whole thing, M.I.A. confirmed the collab, but wouldn't offer up any more deets.

Whatever they're cooking up, we expect lots of bold graphic prints in bright colors!

Ha! It looks like Kristen Stewart's middle finger may not have gone unnoticed after all.

While chatting with the Metro news, Karl Lagerfeld was asked what he thought about M.I.A. and her televised one finger salute during the Super Bowl.
