Myself and Kanye at Boutique one in Mall of the Emirates
A day before his concert.
so we all know who Kanye West is when it comes to his music but we also know him now more than ever for his style as he stepps out in some BOLD and eye catching designs like the time he took to the stage at Coachella in Indio, CA to perform wearing a Celine Spring 2011 women's printed shirt and killed it!!!
I've always had respect for Kanye's Bold moves and style and now with the launch of his Scarf Collection as KANYE WEST, GEORGE CONDO AND M/M (pARiS) iNTRODUCE A LiMiTED EDiTiON COLLECTiON OF 5 SiLK SCARVES..
I'm over the moon and in love with this collection of ART meets Fashion in a way i've missed seeing around this industry....
Last Fall, Kanye West asked m/m (paris) to design the album packaging
for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
West had commissioned George Condo to create a series of paintings featuring
the characters who populate his musical fantasies.
During the creative process, m/m (paris) created a series of
hand drawn ornamented frames to adorn the powerful and iconic Condo paintings.
Playing with the many possibilities of combining the paintings and the frames, m/m (paris)
and Kanye West wanted to find a luxurious expression of their creative efforts —
and decided to use the most striking combinations and transform them into voluptuous silk scarves.
The results are now being released jointly by m/m (paris) and Kanye West as a collection
of five full color scarves made of 100% silk twill.
Each of the five scarves features one of the album covers painted by George Condo
embedded in an intricate gold frame with hand drawn lettering by M/M (Paris).
The combination of this luxurious visual language over the traditional Twill
de Soie is the ultimate celebration
of the magically ornamented sounds of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
Each scarf is produced in a limited edition of 100 units. The first half of the edition
is available through m/m (paris)’s website, and at selected retailers.
5 different designs —
exclusive edition of 100 per design
100% twill de soie
