Yesterday me and friends went to Jay-Z and Kanye West Watch The Throne at the O2. It was an amazing performance and definitely worth the wait. But this post is really more about the outfits Jay & Ye were sporting. This is a great marriage of creative ideas between music and fashion. One of my most favorite designer of Givenchy, Ricardo Tisci, art directed the album Watch The Throne. He continue that relation on WIT tour, with stage outfits and fan T-shirts with artwork from the album, Givenchy stars along the collar and “KW’ and “JZ” initials monogrammed on the sleeve. The rest of the outfits were mostly black and leather much like Givenchy menswear Fall 2011.

US Vogue for March 2012, features the story ‘Tisci’s Time’, highlighting his relationships with Kanye West is also featured in the story and the corresponding photo shoot.
His artwork for the single “H.A.M.” and the album draw Tisci’s childhood passion for mythology and religious iconography and his current psychedelic prints and graphics. "The artwork’s bold colours and angular lines are symbols of masculinity for two of the most iconic rap figures of our time...” Ricardo Tisci.
