Posted: August 11, 2011 in Uncategorized

As the title implies a hidden power struggle, fashion designer  chiseled the cover to “Watch The Throne” into angular, faceted shapes on metallic gold backdrop. While it is rare for a creative director of a fashion house to take part in an album cover design, Tisci, who’s the lead creative mind at GIVENCHY, simply couldn’t give this opportunity away when friends Kanye Westand Jay-Z asked. Aside from the engraved symbolism of masculinity and power, Tisci’s kaleidoscopic images extend inward naturally, where beastly transformations of West and highlight both men’s raw ambitions. “Watch The Throne” by  and Jay-Z is now available for download online, but it’s highly recommended that you purchase the CDs to have the Tisci’s work of art as a keepsake.
