Rapper-producer collaborates with album cover artist on accessories

Kanye West has become a jewellery designer.

The rapper-producer is working with the ’Graduation’ cover artist Takashi Murakami on the collection.

West debuted a prototype piece from the collection at fashion designer Givenchy’s show on Wednesday (October 3) in New York.

He was sporting a huge gold Manga-style diamond-studded pendant around his neck.

Shedding more light on the pieces in his forthcoming collection, West told Woman’s Wear Daily: “They’ll be more accessible, they won’t be all diamonds.”

No release date for the items have yet been announced.
