Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci to Design Kanye West & Jay-Z’s New Album

Kanye West is truly going H.A.M. with the fashion collaborations right now. After famously ditching the Grammy’s to attend fashion week, not to mention rocking Celine at Coachella, rumor has it he’s set to debut his first womenswear collection during NYFW with Louise Goldin. Now he’s tapped Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci to design the artwork for the rapper’s highly anticipated album with Jay-Z.

“Featuring numerous designs inside the sleeve and a printed poster, the album will feature artwork that sticks to the Italian designer’s creative aesthetics of ‘symmetry, lightness, strength, sharpness, darkness and 3D’, which he adheres to when designing for luxury fashion house Givenchy,” notes the Telegraph.

The official cover art for Watch the Throne (set to drop next month) definitely has a Givenchy SS11 vibe. We wouldn’t be surprised if Tisci and West collab further, whether it’s dressing the artist for his next tour or embarking on a capsule collection.
