According to the Luxist, we have yet another celebrity who has decided to branch beyond their day job and design him some jewels. This time, it sort of saddens me, and I've been forced to be more thoughtful, since I kind of like this guy.
Evidently, that adorable Pharrell Williams has been chosen by Marc Jacobs to make a new line of pricey baubles for Louis Vuitton. Pharrell has previously collaborated with Jacobs on a seriously flashy sunglasses collection for LV. It should be known that Pharrell will be working with a real jewelry designer, Camille Miceli, to produce the jewelry line.
According to the article, the goodies will be in the marketplace early next year. Miceli has stated that the jewelry, "Is going to be jewels with such scale, so large - and of course very, very unique."
As opposed to only "very unique?" Or simply "unique?" Uniqueness, last I checked, didn't have disparate levels, no? Unique, is, well, unique.
I digress. Sorry, I had to snark a little because you all know exactly how I feel about celebrities adding new "qualifications" to their resumes, right? Just say NO.
But, as the title said, "Oh, Bother..." Because I simply adore that cute little Pharrell! I can't help it. The moment I saw his video for "Beautiful" - you know the one... where he's all preppy-nerdy chic, singing in that falsetto with Snoop Dogg... romancing the Brazilian honies...
I dunno, I was captivated. He was selling something altogether new and refreshing.
When I saw that, I really had renewed hope for hip-hoppers, and I still do to some extent since Pharrell and the Neptunes are very much in their scene, and selling the Hell out of their records.
Pharrell likes him summa those canary diamonds (oh, yeah, he wore them waaaaaay before Poop Doody did) and dresses himself all fine and shit. So maybe the goods he's "designing" for Louis Vuitton may actually be... good?
If anything, they will be decidedly high-end. No QVC or HSN for Pharrell or Louis Vuitton. Also not a snowball's chance in Hell they'll be sublimely, uh, sublime. But for once I am cautiously curious.
Just, pleeeeeeease, pleeeeeeeease keeping making records, Pharrell. This thirtysomething woman adores your music.
