Pharrell Williams stars in Chanel handbag campaign.
The multi-talented Pharrell Willams has pleasantly surprised us with the news that he is the new face of the Chanel Handbag ad campaign. The American singer, songwriter, rapper, producer… (we could go on) made an appearance on Chanel’s pre-fall 17 show’s runway, walking alongside the likes of Cara Delevigne and Lily-Rose Depp (See picture below). He has now smashed boundaries by being the first male to feature in a Chanel handbag campaign, showcasing the Gabrielle bag.
Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of the French fashion house, told WWD the Gabrielle bag can be worn in “many different circumstances.” Willams added “When I first started wearing it I didn’t have anything in it. I was just so excited to have it. But now I use it to carry my phone, and — you know — essential personal things.”
The campaign will also star Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne and Caroline de Maigret.
Watch out for the campaign which will launch on the 3rd April!
