Pharrell Williams has been named Louis Vuitton’s next creative director of menswear.
The luxury fashion house confirmed the appointment of Williams on Tuesday, after the news was first reported by the Wall Street Journal. The role of men’s creative director was previously held by Virgil Abloh until his death in November 2021.
“Louis Vuitton is delighted to welcome Pharrell Williams as its new men’s creative director.
His first collection for Louis Vuitton will be revealed next June during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris,” Louis Vuitton wrote on Instagram on Tuesday, along with a photo of Williams.
In the post, the brand described Williams as a “visionary whose creative universes expand from music to art, and to fashion”.
“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 brand continued.
“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.”
Pietro Beccari, Louis Vuitton’s chairman and CEO, also shared a message welcoming Williams into the new role.
“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,” Beccari said.https://www.instagram.com/p/CopvowFN3vQ/embed/captioned/?cr=1&v=14&wp=1104&rd=https%3A%2F%2Fladunliadinews.com&rp=%2Flouis-vuitton-names-pharrell-williams-head-of-menswear%2F#%7B%22ci%22%3A0%2C%22os%22%3A5536.000000000001%2C%22ls%22%3A3670%2C%22le%22%3A5530%7D
