Who says men can’t wear handbags? Certainly not Pharrell Williams. He stands as Chanel’s first-ever male handbag model, a title he wears with style in Chanel’s latest campaign video for the Gabrielle bag—named for the brand’s founder (Coco was a nickname!). In the cryptic video, Pharrell explores an abandoned warehouse while toting the iconic handbag by his side.
He runs wild through the space, seeking adventure at every turn, just as one would expect Pharrell might. After about a minute of wordless exploration, he meets a young boy with a message written in cursive on his palm: “Gabrielle.” Then, like any good messenger, the boy disappears, leaving a confused Pharrell in his wake. Honestly, the ad is pretty eerie—smelling stronger of Twin Peaks-inspired direction than Chanel No. 5.
Founder Mike Einziger enlisted the help of Pharrell Williams to show off what the company has developed in special presentation at Disrupt NY. MIXhalo has developed a way to distribute audio to a crowd — like at a concert — in a way, they say, is as good as the musicians hear on stage.
They are set to take the main Disrupt stage at the close of the show, where they will also be performing a special musical performance for the audience. The event is open to all Disrupt attendees and it will be streamed live like the rest of the conference. But only those at the venue will be able to experience the MIXhalo technology firsthand.
Pharrell Williams boosted donations to the Humane Society of the United States at a fundraiser on Saturday (22Apr17) by offering attendees the chance to perform as his backing singers. The Grammy Award-winning musician was booked as a headliner for the HSUS‘ To The Rescue Gala held at the Paramount Pictures lot in Los Angeles, and Pharrell decided to help officials raise a little more cash on the night by inviting a few guests to join him onstage to belt out his smash hit Happy – for $25,000 (£19,550) apiece.
“I feel like I want to try something,” he told the crowd at the bash. “If I can be so humble… but also have the audacity to see if we can raise more money.” Five people took the singer and super-producer up on the opportunity, and helped him close out his three-song set with the theme tune for the animated film Despicable Me 2. Pharrell also performed his Robin Thicke collaboration Blurred Lines and Daft Punk’s Get Lucky, which also featured Chic icon Nile Rodgers.
