M.I.A. Talks Versace Collaboration at Balenciaga

Rapper says she is to unveil collection in two weeks.

ITALIAN JOB: At the Balenciaga show, M.I.A. let slip she has a new fashion project. “I have a collaboration with Versace coming out in two weeks,” the English-Sri Lankan recording artist said from under her glossy black hoodie. Although she was mum on details, it is understood the project is for Donatella Versace’s second line Versus, which is to invite a range of designers and other creative types to interpret the brand. The first was London designer J.W. Anderson.

M.I.A.’s new album, “Matangi,” is due out Nov. 5, to be preceded by a performance in New York on Nov. 3, she added.

Among other VIPs who climbed two flights of stone staircases at the Paris Observatory were Salma Hayek, arriving on the arm of her husband, Kering honcho François-Henri Pinault, and model-cum-DJ Caroline de Maigret.
