Pharrell Plays Chanel's Golden Boy At The Métiers d’Art Show

The bond between Pharrell Williams and Karl Lagerfeld grows ever closer. The duo have created music together – remember that song and accompanying video with Cara Delevingne for the pre-autumn/winter 2015 collection? – and collaborated on a capsule (so far, we have only seen a yellow hoodie from the music maestro’s spring/summer 2019 Chanel edit).

With his partner Helen Lasichanh watching from the sidelines – alongside fellow frow-ers Julianne Moore, Lily Rose Depp and Sofia Coppola – Williams walked the runway, staged in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, wearing gold trousers. And gold boots. And a gold bouclé jumper complete with chainmail neck adornment.

To say the “Happy” hitmaker was in line with the Ancient Egypt theme of the collection is an understatement. Williams was a resplendent example of Lagerfeld's vision. He even wore the same abstract eye make-up as his catwalk peers.

Kaia Gerber, another Chanel collaborator and catwalk favourite, has seen significantly less airtime following the grand presentation. For this season, there's a new golden boy generating fashion headlines. And he's frontin'.
