Kanye West’s ‘The Life of Pablo’ Merch Nominated for ‘World’s Best Design’ Award
Kanye West has another accomplishment to add to his belt—his merchandise for his latest album, The Life of Pablo has been nominated for a prestigious design award.
London's Design Museum has announced the nominees for this year's Beazley's Design of the Year award, which was won by Ikea's flatpack refugee shelter last year. The awards are focused on rewarding the world’s best designs in six separate categories — fashion, architecture, digital, graphics, product and transport. The fashion category features The Life of Pablo merch and pop-up stores by Kanye West, which appeared around the world in August 2016, as well as Nike’s “Pro Hijab” and Aitor Throup‘s “The Rite of Spring/Summer/Autumn/Winter” show at London Fashion Week: Men’s.
Already, The Life of Pablo has racked up major success, including becoming the first streaming-only album to go platinum back in April. As for the design award, all of the shortlisted designs will be on display at London’s Design Museum starting on October 18. A winner will be chosen on January 25.
