Pharrell Williams Named Official Adviser At Human Made
Pharrell Williams is now an official adviser at Human Made.
Pharrell Williams has expanded his fashion credentials. Japanese fashion designer Nigo has named the hip-hop maven official adviser of his brand Human Made, Women’s Wear Daily reports.
In addition to the “Happy” singer serving as an early investor in Human Made since its launch in 2010, Pharrell and Nigo launched Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream together.
“He didn’t have an official role and I thought it was time to make it official that he’s actually advising on the direction of the brand,” Nigo said.
“I’ve really just started talking about it with Pharrell now in this position, and Brian Donnelly [known professionally as Kaws] is also an adviser,” Nigo told WWD. “So now the three of us are officially going to have this responsibility and we’re going to start working out plans.”
Nigo and Pharrell announced their official partnership through an Instagram post last week.
“Welcoming Pharrell as an advisor to the HUMAN MADE team ❤️彡,” Nigo captioned a photo of the two.
“Love you brother,” Pharrell wrote in response.
Pharrell is currently serving as Louis Vuitton’s menswear creative director, where he recently unveiled an American western cowboy-themed runway show at Paris Fashion Week, TMZ reported. LV’s A/W 2024 collection includes fringed coats with the signature LV logo, silk shirts, and bootcut denim. Models even showed off their strength by lugging carts of Louis Vuitton suitcases down the runway.
Celebrity A-listers flocked to the show, including actor Bradley Cooper, rapper Quavo (who wore an LV-monogrammed Canadian tuxedo), rapper Gunna (who paired a fuzzy LV bag with an all-black leather LV ensemble), and Swae Lee, according to GQ.
Meanwhile, according to WWD, Nigo will unveil his fall 2024 men’s and women’s collections for Kenzo on Friday as part of men’s fashion week in Paris.
