Star Crap? Pharrell's Most Ridiculous Product Collabos

Star Crap? Pharrell's Most Ridiculous Product Collabos

pharrell-williams-moncler-vest
Allow us a quick "duh" moment: Money and fame open doors. Case in point: Pharrell has been able to collaborate with some pretty talented designers in the world of furniture, jewelry and fashion to create some pretty...um, interesting products. The latest is a puffy piece that resembles a bullet proof vest, made in conjunction with Moncler (shown above).

Now you would think, given their track record, that Moncler and Pharrell would produce something dope—at least as dope as any other Moncler or BBC product—but no. What we got was an odd, and presumably super-expensive product that only Pharrell would be able to rock without looking like an idiot. But this isn't the first time Skateboard P has created some off-the-wall shit. It's all he knows how to do, really! Don't believe us? Take a look at five of his other ridiculous collaborations below...

Perspective Chair (Pharrell x Domeau & Pérès)
YEAR: 2008
• When asked about the idea behind this series of chairs that were shown at Emmanuel Perrotin Galeries gallery in France, P said: "I had often wondered what it's like to truly be in love, not lust for once...So I decided not to ask what it was like in someone else's shoes or what it was like to sit in their seat...I decided to sketch out my own experiment; the perspective chair." That's odd, because from our perspective, looking at the leg positions, it looks like a girl getting hit off from behind.

The Blason collection (Pharrell x Louis Vuitton x Camille Miceli)
YEAR: 2008
• Although Kanye named himself The Louis Vuitton Don, Pharrell was the first rapper to be asked to design anything for the iconic French fashion house. One of collaborations was the Blason jewelry collection which ranged in price from $2,000 to $621,000 and featured, among other things, a cool pair of door knocker looking earings we wouldn't mind buying for our girl... and an odd gold ring with a cherub holding a big ass diamond (check it HERE). We're guessing that was one of the pieces on the six figure side.

Hand Candle Collection (Pharrell Williams x Atelier WM)
YEAR: 20098
• Almost as famous as the Roc-A-Fella diamond sign is the Vulcan Salute Pharrell co-opted for his Star Trak label. Now, we think it's a cool sign and all, but Pharrell must really like it as he went and made a series of candles molded after his hands. The run of 200 made with French design house Atelier WM featured the Vulcan sign along with some other random ones like, the West Side symbol, the rocker symbol and, of course, the flipping of the bird. All in all, it was pretty damn weird.

pharrell_tankchair

The Tank Chair (Pharrell x Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin)
YEAR: 2009
• Pharrell took another stab at chair creation, but this time he went with a more military look. Made out of plexiglass and full grain colt leather with Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, the chairs are definitely better than the Perspective chairs.

murakami-pharrell-jacob-jeweler-sculpture-1-540x360

Pharrell x Takashi Murakami x Jacob & Co.
YEAR: 2009
• To call this piece of art a "collaboration" is a bit of a stretch. Unveiled at Art Basel, the sculpture part was done by Takashi Murakami while Jacob the Jeweler recreated some of P's favorite objects—Doritoes, Pepsi, Ice Cream sneakers and condoms—in fine metals and diamonds and placed them in the mouth of the sculpture. It can be interpreted a thousand ways, but it could only be purchased one way: with a $2 million check.
