Pharrell Williams has collaborated with Chanel, and it’s rainbow themed.
Welcome to Chanel Pharrell.
The Chanel-Pharrell collection of street-ready, co-branded items, include block colour T-shirts, short and long robes, rhinestone costume jewellery, leather belts, terrycloth bucket hats, suede hip packs, loafers that also come as mules, and eyewear – which I love.
Pharrell has a close rapport with the celebrated French house, having paid tribute to former creative director Karl Lagerfeld, who passed away last month.
Pharrell explained the thought process behind the rainbow-colored clothing. “I love and celebrate individuality,” he says. “The number five has always been Coco’s number. You know, the famous N°5. Five is the number for men. It’s also the date of my birthday.”
Sure to be one of 2019’s hottest releases, the Chanel-Pharrell capsule became available at the opening of the new Chanel boutique in Seoul, South Korea on March 28, and has been in select Chanel boutiques worldwide from April 4th.
It’s the sunglasses and jewellery I am most interested in. Here’s a taster of the collection.
