Kanye West has long been lauded for his sense of style and his love of high end fashion trends. The producer and rapper is also known to indulge in nearly any pursuit that crosses his mind so it is fitting the superstar will be adding his creativity and vision to a fashion line very soon.
Kanye and Paris designers Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag – who both helm the M/M Paris art and design company – are working on a line of silk scarves inspired by artwork from Kanye’s last album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
Artist George Condo, who painted the stirring and controversial images for Kanye’s album covers, is reported to be overseeing the direction and creation of the scarf design. Kanye will not be directly designing the scarves himself but it should be assumed that he will offer some level of input in this latest endeavor. The line of scarves will be exclusively sold in Paris clothing store although potential purchasers will be able to buy the items directly from the M/M Paris website as well.
The M/M Paris duo have amassed quite a list of clients over the years with notable names such as Bjork and Madonna in the world of music and working with fellow designers Calvin Klein and popular English designer (and daughter of Beatle Sir Paul McCartney) Stella McCartney. The pair has also worked alongside the magazines Vogue Paris and Purple as well.
