Last night, one of the world’s leading international fashion houses, Louis Vuitton was delighted to welcome the American record producer, rapper, singer-songwriter, and fashion designer, Pharrell Williams as their new Men’s Creative Director. The Louis Vuitton role was previously held by high-profile designer Virgil Abloh, who passed on in 2021. Pharrell Williams first collection for Louis Vuitton will be revealed next June during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris.
Pharrell Williams is a visionary whose creative universes expand from music to art, and to fashion – establishing himself as a cultural global icon over the past twenty years. The way in which he breaks boundaries across the various worlds he explores, aligns with Louis Vuitton’s status as a Cultural Maison, reinforcing its values of innovation, pioneer spirit, and entrepreneurship.
“I am glad to welcome Pharrell back home, after our collaborations in 2004 and 2008 for Louis Vuitton, as our new Men’s Creative Director. His creative vision beyond fashion will undoubtedly lead Louis Vuitton towards a new and very exciting chapter.”Pietro Beccari, Louis Vuitton’s Chairman and CEO.
