American rapper, music producer and designer Pharrell Williams will be Louis Vuitton‘s new men’s creative director, a role previously held by Virigl Abloh until his death in 2021. With his unique blend of creativity, innovation, and cultural awareness, Williams has captured the imagination of audiences across the globe, and it will be fascinating to see how he translates his vision into high fashion.
“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.
It will be exciting to see what Williams has in store for his first collection, which is set to debut during Men’s Fashion Week in Paris next June.
