It may be awards season, but some stylish stars ditched the entertainment scene for the haute couture shows in Paris. Celebrities came out in full force to Chanel’s garden-inspired spring ’20 couture show, held today in the City of Lights. Chanel collaborator Pharrell Williams held court on the front row alongside wife Helen Lasichanh.
Williams wore a sporty look in a pink blazer, cropped khaki pants and Adidas skate sneakers. A “Human Made” hat completed the ensemble. Meanwhile, Lasichanh wore shades of black-and-white. She wore a houndstooth coat over a gray knee-length dress. The look was finished off by pointed-toe, bow-adorned heels with a cap toe.
Pharrell and Japanese artist Mr. teamed up to launch a site-specific installation at the Guimet National Museum of Asian Arts. The forthcoming exhibition will be installed at institute’s fourth-floor rotunda beneath the dome of the main building — organized between Perrotin and Kaikai Kiki Co., Ltd.
“The show entitled will spotlight captivating paintings, sculptures, and installations in the trademark aesthetic of Mr., with pieces portraying images of children symbolically holding weapons. “Amid the tension and crisis of uncertainty that we live in today, we need to believe in the hope that can be found in children, and take inspiration on the promise of their optimistic outlook and spirit. Kids have the power. With art, we start this dialogue in this way” said the artist in a statement. Pharrell adds: “Kids run the world and this work is a challenge to leaders to do something immediately – for a better, bright future.”
“Carte blanche to Mr. and Pharrell Williams: A Call To Action” will run July 10 to September 23. Head to Guimet National Museum of Asian Arts’ website to learn more. In other pivotal presentations, the first Black solo curator of the Guggenheim Chaédria LaBouvier uncovered new research on Basquiat’s ‘Defacement’ painting of police brutality.
