Chanel collaborates with Pharrell Williams on a capsule collection aptly titled ‘Chanel Pharrell’ featuring heavy co-branded detailing including embroidery and sequinned logos.
Pieces include green and blue “Pharrell” iterations of Chanel’s signature round sunglasses; a white sweatshirt with “Chanel Pharrell” in red on the chest; a white shirt; a yellow hoodie with whimsical Chanel branding; a soft, green tote bag; a blue side bag possibly constructed from suede, with a quilted panel; and finally, custom Chanel x Pharrell sneakers.
Of his style, Pharrell says, “I don’t have a style as much as I have tendencies. I find a silhouette that I like, that I’m inspired by… and that becomes my look for like, 6 to 8 months… I’m a creature of habit, and I wear seemingly the same shit… until I’m inspired by something else and then I completely get rid of everything else.”
Stand-out pieces in the collection include the previously-teased yellow bathrobe, brightly-colored hoodies and T-shirts. Other key pieces include the range of accessories, which spans oversized shopper bags, “Chanel Pharrell” diamond jewelry and bucket hats. In terms of footwear, the collection covers sneakers with hand-drawn text and doodles, as well as co-branded loafers and sliders.
The collection also references a personal anecdote from Pharrell. The creative once bet with a friend that he would not work with Chanel. Having lost this bet, Pharrell has printed his response to his friend on a T-shirt.
The collection is available at the new Seoul flagship boutique as of March 29th, in select boutiques worldwide as of April 4th.
