During the same year that My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy came out, Kanye collaborated with Jay-Z to create Watch the Throne. The album boasted "luxury rap" lyrically, and the artwork was just as flashy and metallic. Givenchy creative director, Riccardo Tisci, was asked to create the designs for Watch the Throne, which was nominated for a Best Recording Packaging GRAMMY in 2011.
Tisci was also responsible for Kanye's infamous kilt that he wore on stage during the Watch the Throne tour, in addition to all of the tour outfits and merchandise.
