M.I.A is the new inspiration of Danish designer Astrid Anderson.

Following a recent collaboration, a new collection produced by the two renowned artists is now available.

M.I.A, the London-born singer and music producer who recently released two new tracks, ‘Goals’ and ‘Finally’, has collaborated with one of fashion's most forward-thinking designers, Astrid Anderson. The Danish designer, who normally focuses on sports luxury and menswear, has changed the direction of her work. "I’ve been a fan of M.I.A. for a long time" she told Vogue on the eve of her Spring 2018 show at the Copenhagen Fashion Week. M.I.A. has long been considered avant-garde in terms of her artistry and image, so it’s no surprise that she was already a big fan of Astrid’s work. "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 in the collection are a mix of colours and artwork from M.I.A’s AIM album and Anderson's Spring Line 2017. Orange and black anoraks, track pants, and tees range in price from $70 to $160 and are available on M.I.A.’s e-commerce site. The all-black anorak is made from 100% recycled plastic.

Born Free (music video)

Making GaGa's 'Telephone' vid look like something by Doris Day, M.I.A.'s 'Born Free' music video-cum-short film is obscene, attention-seeking and ruthlessly violent, making it a perfect partner for the track itself. Ethnic cleansing, middle-aged sex and a milion other things I'm not comfortable seeing on a Wednesday afternoon get an airing in the Sri Lankan renaissance woman's vid, which has been banned by the powers that be at YouTube. I'll let you make up your own mind on the gratuitous violence, but I challenge anyone to knock French director Romain Gavras' stunning cinematography.
