The Nowness published a series of photos from the graphic and art design firm M/M (Paris), depicting their most recent collaboration with Kanye. Founders Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag designed baroque lettering for the liner notes to on Kanye's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which also featured cover art by George Condo.

Now the duo is taking the collaboration one step further with a range of silk scarves pairing their lettering with Condo’s images. The scarves will be sold in a limited-edition of 250 (50 of each of five designs) this spring at Colette and www.mmparis.com. Augustyniak and Amzalag allegedly described collaborating with Kanye as “a complex exploration of power,” which is French for "a beautiful dark twisted fantasy."
