Pharrell: Places and Spaces I’ve Been

While his style may not be for everyone, there’s no denying that Pharrell Williams has been at the forefront of several niche styles of late. Pharrell is a creative force to be reckoned with and he hits pretty much all the bases, utilizing music, fashion, design and now writing to express his distinct and unique ideas. He’s paved the way for other prominent musicians and cultural figures to get into the same cross-over point: he was mixing music, fashion, street style and design before Kanye; buying into coconut water companies before 50 Cent; and generally being the best at picking his spots and jumping into them. This book documents not only his musical career including the Neptunes, N.E.R.D., Pharrell’s solo material and his collaborations with Kanye West, Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg (ahem, Lion) but also his work in various creative pursuits including accessory design with Louis Vuitton, furniture design, collaborations with architect Zaha Hadid and clothing collections with Moncler and Marc Jacobs. It also features a number of conversations between and a few of his more inspiring acquaintances, including Buzz Aldrin, Anna Wintour, Takashi Murakami, Jay-Z, Kanye West and Hans Zimmer. In short, even if you’re not all that into his style, this is a thoroughly interesting collection of imagery, conversations that will do anyone for some new inspiration. It’s available now for pre-order through Amazon.
