Swagger Like Us

Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam, better known as M.I.A. was once a displaced refugee from Sri Lanka and has, undoubtedly, become a talented political lyricists, as well as music video and documentary director, graphic designer and photographer. In addition to her many talents, she's is a world-renowned funky fashionista as well! The metallic getups combined with some high tops and a gold chain screams an old-school/futuristic combo which blows us away. Her style is unique, comfortable, and fresh to death! Her individuality and character spills through to her style, which inspires us in hopes that ours (and yours) do the same! Is her dad a dealer? Cause she's dope to us.
