Pharrell Williams is designing a capsule collection for Chanel

Popstar Pharrell Williams has revealed that he is designing a capsule collection with Chanel. 

Attending a repeat of the fashion house’s 2018 Cruise show in Bangkok, Williams sat front row alongside his wife Helen Lasichanh and son Rocket Williams, wearing a yellow hoodie festooned with sparkly Chanel logos.

The embellished item was later revealed as his own design with Williams confirming that the collection was “coming soon”.

Part of a ready-to-wear and accessories edit launching in spring/summer 2019, the details of the rest of the pieces are yet to be released.

However, Chanel has confirmed that the entire collection will debut exclusively on March 29, at its new Seoul flagship boutique, followed by select Chanel stores around the world from April 4.

The 45-year-old musician has worked with Chanel numerous times over the years, starring in a number of the houses’s campaigns, writing a song for an original film by Karl Lagerfeld and even walking the runway at the Metier d’Arts pre-fall 2017 show.

Last year, Williams also brought sportswear giant Adidas and Chanel together with the launch of the Hu NMD sneaker; a limited edition shoe that sold for £30,000 on the resale market. 

This isn’t the only designer collaboration fashion fans are eagerly waiting upon.

On November 8, Moschino will be launching its highly-anticipated collection with high street store H&M.

The collaboration is expected to have a much lower price point than is typical of the brand with pieces varying from £25 to £300, an attractive alternative for fans of Moschino who can afford pieces from its standard range.
