Things look very different when your name is Pharrell Williams. No, really. Not only did the artist stroll into Kenzo's Fall/Winter 2022 show flexing a new pair of shades, but it also marked his upcoming collab with the designers behind 'em. Here's what we know so far. Keep scrolling.
On Sunday, January 23, the Happy artist was spotted cheering on longtime friend NIGO as he made his creative directorial debut at Kenzo's Paris exhibit. And, no surprise, it was one for the books. But while the show marked the Japanese streetwear legend's dive into high-fashion, that wasn't the only moment that caught our attention. Sporting almond-shaped sunglasses with diamond-encrusted detailing, William's look opened the lid on another "first:" His upcoming collab with Tiffany & Co. "Tiffany and I are engaged," the visionary explained to WWD, as he flashed a massive smile. As Williams added, his swanky shades were only the "first of many things that he's gonna do with Tiffany."
Anyone else got lots of questions? We might be waiting a while 'til we get our answers: "I can't give it all away now," Williams explained. "I don't want to go too much into detail, OK, because we're here today to celebrate my brother Nigo." What he did give away, though, was that the upcoming drop will be coming in hot. "It's different. It's a partnership," he teased, when asked how it stood out from his prior projects. "It's about seeing things differently." In case you forgot, this isn't the first time Pharrell swapped Billboard tracks for bling. Back in 2008, the rapper linked up with Louis Vuitton for their fine jewelry collection, Blason. Crafted with the help of jewelry consultant Camille Miceli the icy collab was fit for royalty, with pieces ranging from $2,070 up to 6-figures.
Safe to say, if the upcoming line is like anything he's touched before, you won't want to miss it. Until then, be sure to check out Nigo's Kenzo debut to see what all the hype was about for yourself. And, of course, stay tuned for all the latest drops.
