Pharrell Williams is a cultural icon of our times. Not only has he shaped the contemporaly musical landscape with his Grammywinning solo, N¤E¤R¤D and collaborative work – Britney, Jay-Z, Madonna, Beyoncé to name but a few – he is also a style icon”Esquire’s Best Dressed Man In The World 2005” and founder of supercool clothing labels Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream. All that aside – if one man were to represent Supersuper’s relentlessy optimistic & playful spirit, it would be him. So, unsurprisingly, I jumped at the chance to hang out and talk brain style, space travel and the fabulous new BBC & Ice Cream collections with the man himself.
Namalee: Hey Pharrell, It’s lovely to meet you!
Pharrell: Likewise. You look dope, colours! Colours!
N: Thank you! Your new BBC collection looks amaaazing. It’s based on a “space beach” right?
P: Yeah. If there’s something that you can’t do in the real world then you should imagine it. I welcomed “space beach” into the art of the mind. I imagined if the moon had water and waves, and then collection just flowed like that. When I was a kid, I was blown away by rockets, stars, planets, robots…
N: You’re obsessed! Are you ever gonna get over that space thing?!
P: Naaaaah!!! Hahahaha!
N: So are you gonna take a trip to space in one of these new Virgin space buses that are launching soon?
P: No Way! I’m a walking accident, and well, I’m afraid of heights!
N: You’re joking, right? It’s one of your brands! Girl you don’t know what you mean to me/ You are my everything / You are my alien from S-P-A-C-E”… you gotta go!
