Last Fall, Kanye West asked M/M (Paris) to design the album packaging for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. West had commissioned George Condo to create a series of paintings featuring the characters who populate his musical fantasies. During the creative process, M/M (Paris) created a series of hand-drawn ornamented frames to adorn the powerful and iconic Condo paintings. Each of the five scarves features one of the album covers painted by George Condo embedded in an intricate gold frame with hand drawn lettering by M/M (Paris). Each scarf is produced in a limited edition of 100 units. The first half of the edition is available from Monday, May 9th through M/M (Paris) and at Colette, 213 Rue Saint-Honoré, Paris.
