Kanye West: Scarf Designer

Putting his finger in ever more pies.

Kanye West is a man shrouded by a constant cloud of controversy. Whether you love him, hate him or are just simply indifferent towards him, you've got to admit that he definitely provides us with endless entertainment, whether it's by becoming one of hip-hop's most sought-after producers, releasing five platinum albums, designing a shoe line for Louis Vuitton or rudely interrupting an MTV awards show (and subsequently being called a jackass by Barack Obama).

His latest effort is a collaboration with M/M (Paris) on a range of silk scarves that will have a similar look to the artwork on his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album cover. The M/M (Paris) designers, Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag, created the typeset that accompanied George Condo's artworks for the album cover. The scarves will be sold in limited runs of 50, with each design being sold at Colette and M/M (Paris) online.
