Pharrell Williams is an entity whose creative tendrils spread far and wide. Mastering the realms of music, art, and fashion – Williams has an expansive artistic eye, which will lend itself perfectly to the lofty job of Men’s Creative Director for Louis Vuitton.
Since Louis Vuitton’s debut over a century ago, the House has always been centred on the zeitgeist. Unleashing forward-thinking pieces which are also faithful to its heritage, creative yet elegant ready-to-wear, shoes, accessories, fragrances and more have been bestowed upon customers. An ode to the art of craftsmanship, Louis Vuitton has maintained a unifying creative vision.
With Williams’ multidisciplinary abilities, he’s been able to consistently break down boundaries – ultimately pushing the culture forward. This partnership reinforces the House’s values of innovation, pioneering, and entrepreneurship; Louis Vuitton’s Chairman and CEO couldn’t be more pleased. “I am glad to welcome Pharrell back home, after our collaborations in 2004 and 2008. His creative vision beyond fashion will undoubtedly lead Louis Vuitton towards a new and very exciting chapter,” Pietro Beccari reflects.
Williams’ first collection at the helm of Louis Vuitton’s menswear will be unveiled this June during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris.
