M.I.A. Unveils Merch Collab With Astrid Andersen


The pieces are reimagined standouts from Andersen's spring '17 womenswear collection.

M.I.A. has partnered with Danish luxury designer Astrid Andersen for her first collection of designer merchandise. The pieces are reimagined standouts from Andersen's spring '17 womenswear collection, with the colors and imagery changed to reflect the black and oranges of M.I.A.'s most recent album, AIM, which the signer intends to support with an upcoming world tour.

"I've been a fan of M.I.A. for a long time," Andersen told Vogue. "She was the benchmark for cool women who would wear my new collection--so when she called me, I was mega-excited."

Andersen designed her first full line of womenswear for her fall '17 collection, after successfully breaking onto the scene with her menswear collections.

"I admire how strong her entire universe is," Andersen continued. "Her message is strong and pure and her personality is strong-willed and determined--determined to stay on her own path and include people in her vision without outside noise. That's rare to find and that's what made her so incredible to work with."

The collection includes anoraks, track pants, and t-shirts, all updated versions from Andersen's hip-hop and basketball-influenced collection.

"I chose to work with Astrid because she is an independent who combines function, sport, simplicity, and futurism," M.I.A. told Vogue. "It all very much suits my personal style because it's utilitarian--you can wear it to a club because everything is light."

The pieces will be available on M.I.A.'s new ecommerce site starting tomorrow, with prices ranging from $70 to $160.
