Look out for Louis Vuitton! Pharrell Williams’ VERY eccentric fashion moments – as he becomes the design house’s new creative director
Pharrell Williams has big shoes to fill as the new creative director for Louis Vuitton’s menswear department – but the rapper and producer is no stranger to quirky fashion choices.
The brand’s former creator and director, the late Virgil Abloh, who died of cancer in 2021 at the age of 41, had taken the brand to new heights thanks to some street style collaborations that upped Louis Vuitton’s cool factor.
And the Happy singer, 41, who was also a Chanel brand ambassador, seems a natural successor to the Off White creator as he was one of Abloh’s friends and has developed an eccentric sense of style over the years.
His more unusual styles include his whimsical sneakers, tailored Bermuda shorts and a giant hat he wore to the 2014 Grammys.
The producer, who founded his own fashion label Billionaire Boys Club in 2003, has also worn outlandish coats and unusual combinations.
Here, FEMAIL reveals his very eccentric fashion moments as he becomes the new creative director of Louis Vuitton.
