M.I.A’s Clothing Label ‘Okley Run’

Despite her leaving the music industry, M.I.A has kept herself busy. SLAMXHYPE’s sister site, AnyOne Girl reports on the Sri Lankan’s newest venture.  Inspired by her recent visit to a remote island in the Caribbean, it was here that M.I.A meet Okley Leslie, a 16 year old albino boy who she believes represents the elements of her designs for new label Okey Run. During their time together, M.I.A recorded a film about Okley’s life on the Island which will now double as a campaign promotion for her collection. Key pieces in the line feature an African print bomber jacket for the boys and a geometric jumpsuit (very M.I.A style) for the girls.
