Ambra Medda & Pharrell/Billionaire Girls Club
Pharrell recently met up with WWD.com at Thursday’s National Design Awards to talk about what recently impressed him visually and some future projects besides music. Williams singled out a futuristic Kuala Lumpur house, and three in Singapore — The Sun House, The Fish House, and The Tangga House — that he recently spotted in a book, and reveals that he is a big fan of Alber Elbaz, Marc Jacobs and Marc Newsom’s Aquariva design for speedboat maker Riva. “Every Comme des Garçons show is just perfection and Alber Elbaz is a genius, too. So is Marc Jacobs. I am so inspired by each one of them.
They are totally imaginative. I wish to be that way one day.” Pharrell also revealed that he plans to launch Billionaire Girls Club in spring 2013 as well as collaborating with Mark McNairy, the former creative director of Ivy League on shoes that will be released at the end of February 2012. Last but not least, the only thing that Pharrell hasn’t done yet is writing a book and that’s exactly what’s he’s doing right now. He is working on a book with Ambra Medda, co-founder and director of Design Miami and Design Miami/Basel — “Places & Spaces I’ve Been.”
