The 41-year-old ‘Happy’ singer has created a four-pieces collection of handbags with the Parisian luxury leather goods brand that includes a hand-tooled resin handbag, a hand-sculpted Ebony wood clutch and two leather pochettes (available in seven different colours) – all of them carefully hand-crafted at an Italian atelier.
A locomotive-themed handbag might sound quirky, however, to get your hands in one of them you better start saving as prices start from $4,000 and go up to $10,000 (approx.. £2,500 – £6,200).
The multifaceted musician and The Voice coach has delved into the fashion industry already. As well as being well known for his unquestionably trademark look of hat and bling sneakers, he has many brand collaborations. He’s previously designed a collection of sneakers with Adidas, a fragrance with Comme des Garcos, a line of sunglasses for Moncler and an affordable streetwear line with Uniqlo. The locomotive-themed collaboration with the LVMH-owned label is his next step in fashion.
Aimed to appeal to our “inner child”, the line is inspired by vintage trunks and an old Moynat label featuring a train.
Williams told The Telegraph: “For about seven or eight years I had wanted to make these bags after seeing Harvey Girls with Judy Garland.”
Moynat x Pharrell Williams launches at Colette in Paris on 13 October and then at Moynat boutiques worldwide on 20.
