Pharrell is back with a fashion collaboration and yes, it will make you happy.
Other than the fact that he is a vampire who simply doesn't age, Pharrell Williams is a fashion icon if we ever did see one. From oversized hats to simply outrageous patterns, his style is like no other. Therefore, it only made sense that he would launch a capsule with one of the best in the business, Chanel.
Ever since we saw the singer rocking a vibrant yellow hoodie emblazoned with sparkly Chanel insignia last November, we knew this collection would blast off.
This collection really is the love child of Pharrell and Chanel. It consists of 40 items that all feature an ultra-cool urban vibe or ready-to-wear pieces. The signature CC and N°5 logos have been reimagined into graffiti with inspiration being drawn from street art. The collection offers unisex hoodies and tees in a rainbow palette, rhinestone costume jewellery, terry towelling bucket hats, bum bags, trainers and logo-ed belts.

"Gabrielle Coco Chanel didn't see partitions, and it's interesting, because neither did the brand when it came to giving me a shot," says Pharrell. "[Chanel] is not afraid of these things, just like [Gabrielle] wasn't afraid. There doesn't need to be boundaries as long as you can hold onto the heritage and continue to push it, like Karl always [did]. We don't need walls, we need bridges."
This isn't the first time the two parties have worked together either. In fact, they have a history. The singer and record producer had previously done some runway modelling for the designer brand, has been the face of its Gabrielle bag and was also involved in designing a pair of the brand's sneakers in 2017. However, with the newest launch, their relationship has never been stronger.
When and where can you shop the collection?
You'll be able to purchase items from the collection on the 4 April. It will be available in Chanel stores around the world and we wouldn't wait too long as we wouldn't be surprised to see a sell-out.
