Pharrell Williams ruins everything. Announced this week that he is to bring more ‘whimsy’ to fashion, Pharrell has collaborated with French leather goods company Moynat to create a capsule collection of bags all inspired by vintage steam trains.
While I don’t mind the designs (I do enjoy a train as much as Marc Jacobs), I dislike the notion of someone who in this past month has already released collaborations with high street brands G-Star Raw and Adidas teaming up the 19th century luxury trunk maker Moynat who pride themselves on craftsmanship. Where is the connection between a £10,000 bag and a pair of £120 sneakers?
Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t find Pharrell stylish, fashionable or even creditable. So why does Pharrell Williams have to be in fashion?
