Kanye West Creates Limited Range of Scarves

Rapper/producer/style savant/Tory Burch menswear test case Kanye West made fashion headlines (again) when he reached out to M/M Paris’ Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag to create a limited range of scarves based on the George Condo paintings that he commissioned for his latest album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. (Condo’s image of an angel in flagrante made the cover—where, that is, it wasn’t censored.) News on the scarves has been circulating, but the scarves themselves have yet to go on sale. That changes Monday, when they go hit and Colette, in editions of 100. The five designs include a take on the album’s cover (”Phoenix,” below); a crowned, perhaps Kanye-esque head stuck with a sword (”Power,” bottom); two screaming faces (”Face” and “Priest”); and our favorite, “Ballerina” (above). The French-made, silk twill scarves all feature Condo’s paintings, with hand-lettered borders by M/M Paris.

Interesting...but uhm no. I wouldn't wear these if you dashed me. Maybe i'll frame it though. That first one is just crazy!
