Pharrell Williams quits Chanl for LVMH and strode into Kenzo’s fall 2022 show in Paris on Sunday wearing almond-shaped sunglasses rimmed in diamonds and with an emerald studding each temple, teasing a new design project with Tiffany & Co. He said the sunglasses were the “first of many things that I’m gonna do with Tiffany.”
Asked about the collaboration, he retorted: “No, it’s different. It’s a partnership.…It’s about seeing things differently.” Pressed for more details about the glasses, and the partnership, Williams demurred: “I can’t give it all away now. I don’t want to go too much into detail, OK, because we’re here today to celebrate my brother Nigo.”
He was referring to the Japanese streetwear guru who was making his debut as the new creative director of Kenzo. The show attracted the likes of Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, Julia Fox, Pusha T, Tyler the Creator and Shygirl to a chilly, covered passage near the Place des Victoires.
