Style Icon: Pharrell Williams

Producer, recording artist, fashion designer. Pharrell Williams is best known for his role in N.E.R.D and numerous collaborations with artists across a huge range of musical genres from rock to R&B. While Pharrell has had success as an artist with hits such as 'She Wants To Move' and 'Frontin'', he is most revered in the industry for his skills as a producer: being responsible for hits by artists like Nelly, Britney Spears, Beyonce and Madonna to name a few. I, however, have always loved him for his fashion sense (amongst other things... ahem).

Since his N.E.R.D came to the world's attention in 2004 for 'She Wants To Move' I have been following Pharrell's fashion metamorphoses. In 2005 he collaborated with founder of A Bathing Ape apparel label and fashion icon Nigo to produce his own fashion lines Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream. Five years on he is now working with couture giant Louis Vuitton, producing a range of jewellery and sunglasses.

But if there is one thing I love about Pharrell it is his confidence in what he wears. He is a fashion chameleon and has sported a wide variety of looks over the years, but he is always true to himself and always looks effortlessly cool. My personal favourite is his most recent waistcoat combo. What can I say? I'm a fan of the modern day gent!
