After Louis Vuitton made the announcement back in February proudly introducing Pharrell Williams as its new Men's Creative Director, the fashion world eagerly awaited this momentous collaboration, poised to witness the fusion of Pharrell Williams' artistic genius with the timeless elegance of Louis Vuitton.
Pharrell Williams debuted his first Louis Vuitton menswear Collection in Pont Neuf in Paris on the 20th of June, inspired by the profound themes of love and community.
Prior to the show, Pharrell Williams reflected on his unique experience since assuming the role, expressing his historical significance by stating, "I am only the second Black man to ever embark on this journey on a global scale, representing the world's most prominent fashion house." In gracefully stepping into the shoes of his friend Virgil Abloh, who held the position from March 2018 until his untimely passing in November 2021, Pharrell further conveyed his deep admiration for Virgil's groundbreaking work. "My brother Virgil was a true trailblazer. He brought forth immense progress for the house, pushing boundaries and infusing skate culture into this esteemed realm, all while being an African American. It is truly surreal that I now have the opportunity to continue in his footsteps," Pharrell expressed with heartfelt appreciation.
The collection features full suits, bomber jackets, coordinated sets, graphic shirts, and leather coats.
