He’s a hip-hop artist, a sneaker designer, and even a perfumer. But Kanye West isn’t stopping the brand expansion there: now he’s moving onto scarf designing. According to Nowness.com, West is helping to create a new line of scarves inspired by the artwork on his latest album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. West commissioned M/M’s Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag to create illustrative patterns that complement the record’s cover images, which consist of five bawdy paintings by American artist George Condo. The scarves will feature baroque-style letters, and figures like a severed head wearing a crown and a naked sphinx straddling a likeness of West. The scarves will be sold in a limited-edition of run 250 (50 of each of five designs) this spring at Colette and mmparis.com, but you can get a sneak peek of the collection at nowness.com. Tell us: What do you think of West’s racy scarves? –Kim Peiffer

Yup, I and my friends toguhht the same thing, we figured it was all a set up by Kanye West in order to make someone’s career grow or prevent from going down…that’s Hollywood for you!!! Nothing is ever real expect maybe for some “real life” shows/reality shows, but even those, I’m sure, are edited to a certain extent.
