Pharrell’s JOOPITER has announced details for its latest auction experience, titled Just Phriends.

The auction boasts more than 50 unique lots and is a partnership between Pharrell and colette’s Sarah Andelman, who said in a press release she was “very honored” to have been invited along for this journey.

“We have known each other for such a long time now, we have so many great souvenirs of collaborations at colette," Andelman said. "For this unique auction, I immediately thought of bringing together the artists and designers who have a history of working with Pharrell, but also a new generation of talents I love and find relevant in today’s culture, that’s why it’s called _Just Phriend_s.”

A highlight among the included pieces is Takashi Murakami’s collaborative piece with Pharrell from 2009, titled “The Simple Things.” In addition to being included in the auction, the piece will be on display for the very first time during Men’s Fashion Week proceedings in Paris.

JOOPITER has revealed the 61 lots that will be included in the auction and retail experience. In addition to “The Simple Things," key lots include George Condo, “Portrait of an English Lady”; Kaws’ MTV Moonman; Tiffany & Co. x Pharrell Williams, Astro Mint Pendant; Richard Mille, RM 65-01 Automatic Winding Split-seconds Chronograph; and Pedro Winter, “Initials PW” record collection.

“The lots are a mix of rare artworks, culturally-provenant objects and exclusive interdisciplinary collaborations spanning fine art, high jewelry, furniture design, fashion and objects,” a press release reads. “Most works are bespoke, unseen or created especially for this auction.”

Other artists represented in the larger auction include KAWS, MSCHF, Louis Vuitton, and more. Bidding via the JOOPITER site will launch on June 19 and wrap up on June 27. Lots will also be available to see at a special public preview during Paris Men’s Fashion Week located at 8 Avenue Matignon, open daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., June 20 to 24.


Pharrell is currently fresh off the 2023 edition of his Something in the Water festival in Virginia Beach. This year’s genre-spanning lineup featured Lil Uzi Vert, Clipse, Maren Morris, Wet Leg, Third Eye Blind, Summer Walker, and more.
