It’s hard to believe that Pharrell Williams, a man whose most notable achievement at one point was a lyrical contribution to “Rumpshaker”, is now a major player in the fashion world. Williams rose to fame as a gifted producer of rap, R&B and pop music in the ’90s and ’00s; his solo production along with his work as part of The Neptunes dominated the Billboard Hot 100 chart for several years. Williams himself became a style icon during this time, with his fits—spanning red carpets and music videos—serving as inspiration for a generation who loved hip-hop culture but didn’t feel comfortable with the mainstream look the culture pushed at the time. This eventually lead to Pharrell starting Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream, both of which proved to cement Williams as a cultural force whose expertise reached far beyond the studio. Williams eventually went on to partner with brands such as adidas, Chanel and G Star Raw, bringing his particular brand of star power to each.
