"a Louis Vuitton collection by TYLER OKONMA"

Pharrell Williams fortsätter att visa framfötterna som kreativt ansvarig på det franska modehuset Louis Vuitton. Efter att ha samarbetat med rapkollegan Tyler, The Creator på olika projekt så lanseras nu en kapselkollektion för våren 2024. I ett uttalande via Louis Vuittons hemsida beskriver Pharrell relationen och samarbetet med Tyler:

“Tyler has been my close friend and collaborator for years and we’ve always connected on music and design. This collaboration is unique to Louis Vuitton because it’s a natural extension of our LVERS philosophy, building on our network of incredible artists and creatives. There are so many elements specific to Tyler built into these pieces and it’s been inspiring to see him hone in on his craft and collaborate with him for this Spring collection.”

Tyler, The Creator säger följande i ett uttalande:

“My main focus was making things I would wear all the time. I dress the same in a meeting as I do a performance or grocery store trip, so hand drawing the monogram felt like the perfect balance to me. The chessboard is one of the greatest things I’ve made and is definitely my favorite thing from the collection. The team was great to work with, it kinda felt like ‘Big’ with Tom Hanks. P has always left a door open for me, but I still can’t believe this one.”

Han beskriver vidare kollektionen på följande vis:

“hand drawn monograms, wavy soles, waffle and butter sandles, dogs, pastel colors all that. i wanted to mix my style and louis vuittons codes together in a way that felt slightly whimsical but could still be worn to the gas station on a tuesday. what an experience being in that office, imagination running wild. have you seen that chessboard?!!!! i had a real late night editing these photos, im happy to finally share this collection and lookbook with you guys. still cant believe it.”

Kollektionen släpps 21 mars 2024 via louisvuitton.com. Se plaggen och accessoarerna nedan!
