Music producer Pharrell Williams’ affection for classic French couture house Chanel has been evident for some time. Not only has he been rocking Chanel necklaces for years (remade with real gemstones), but he also appeared in a short film for Chanel and has walked the runway in Paris for the brand.
His latest exploit is to be the first man to appear in a handbag campaign for the storied fashion house. In the April 3 ads, Pharrell sports the crocodile version of Chanel’s new Gabrielle bag.
Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s couturier since 1983, said he wished to show that the Gabrielle bag can be worn in “many different circumstances.”
