Pharrell Williams made an unexpected appearance on the runway of Chanel‘s Métier d’Arts show in New York last night. Channeling some serious deity vibes in an all-gold ’fit that paired metallic trousers and boots with a knitted tunic and giant neckpiece, the frequent Chanel collaborator perfectly complemented the shows setting — the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Egyptian Temple of Dendur.
Golden decadence was the aim of the game in the 17th iteration of Karl Largerfeld’s traveling show, with most looks incorporating opulent, dazzling shades on either apparel or accessories. While silhouettes and fabrics ranged from knitted wool to denim through silk, the more interesting garments take inspiration from traditional Egyptian wares, reimagining ancient styles like tunics and shendyts, and reimagining them for the contemporary market.
Of course, this isn’t the only project that has seen Williams’ link up with Karl Lagerfeld lately. Back in October, the artist announced he has another Chanel collaboration on the way, yet what form that will take remains to be seen.
