Kanye West and Riccardo Tisci Spawn ‘Hard’ Album Art

By

Apparently Kanye West's relationship with high fashion in France, Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci in particular right now, is so special and close that Tisci would produce this for him. It's the art from Kanye's single with Jay-Z called "H.A.M." (stands for "Hard As a Motherfucker") and includes the credit "creative direction by Riccardo Tisci." Ironically, while this imagery is about being so very hard, Tisci's last men's collection was full of things that don't feel quite as hard, like glossy silk leopard-print man-skirts, lace, and tights. Maybe he was saving it all up for this fierce-ass artistic moment.
