Not many musicians have managed to dive into the fashion world as deep as Pharrell Williams. The singer and producer is at this point probably as known for the music as he is for the fashion. Next to running his own brand Billionaire Boys Club, Williams has had countless high profile collaborations over the years, including work with Moynat, adidas Originals, G-Star and many others. Without any doubt, he has become a fashion tastemaker like no other and it looks like he is now teaming up with one of the most luxurious fashion houses of the world – Chanel.
Chanel launched a nice behind-the-scenes video of Pharrell visiting House and its Métiers d’art.
“Last March, a few days after attending the Fall-Winter 2016/17 Ready-to- Wear show at the Grand Palais, the multi-talented artist spent a day with the craftsmen whose expertise and skill are unique to the Métiers d’art of CHANEL.
Through the exceptional work of the embroiderer Lesage, the feathers and flowers maker Lemarié, the pleater Lognon, the shoe maker Massaro and the hat maker Maison Michel, Pharrell Williams was able to plunge to the very heart of their creative processes and take part in the creation of these unique pieces from the Métiers d’art Paris in Rome 2015/16 collection.”
Pharrell actually had a hand at creating some of these coveted items, which will be available in boutiques from June 2016. Watch the video here above and hopefully we can soon preview these items to you.
