Pharrell Williams: Modern Day Universalist and Style Mastermind

There is a good chance you’ve been humming Pharrell’s Happy since his recent Oscar performance, or that you’ve been listening to his new album G I R L since it came out last week. Maybe you’re still stuck with Get LuckyBlurred Lines, or one of his other inescapable hits. Pharrell Williams is one of those people we’ve been watching in awe for the last ten years, if you can believe. Have you been wondering why he doesn’t seem to age? Are you intrigued by his unwavering influence in music and fashion? So is everyone else. Pharrell is just an extremely well rounded person, with a clear vision of what he wants and an incredibly unique ability to get it.

Pharrell’s been pushing music and fashion boundaries since 2003, breaking stereotypes left and right, but now more than ever seems to be his time. He produced two of the biggest songs of 2013, got nominated for an Oscar, took a Grammy home, and got hitched.  His clothing lines Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream turned 10. To those tuned in over the years, Pharrell’s evolving style is reflective of his multi layered personality and talents. Every time he steps out in public he opens a box of surprises, unleashing elements of playfulness in skate culture, hip-hop bling, and high fashion – he looks especially spectacular wearing Lanvin. Pharrell’s style is so self-specific, and that in itself offers encouragement to others just to wear what they feel like.
