Annual Art Issue: Pharrell Covers W Magazine

9 May


Pharrell Williams has landed the cover of magazine’s annual ‘Art issue’.  In the cover story, the hitmaker discusses his new Adidas deal and explains that his upcoming line is all about “equality.” He also spoke about his now famous hat designed by Vivienne Westwood in 1982; 

“I bought it five or six years ago,” Williams told me during the band’s sound check. “I went into the store World’s End in London with my friend Ronnie Newhouse to buy a pair of boots for my wife. While we were there, Ronnie [a creative director who understands the power and history of fashion like few others] told me that the hat was designed by Vivienne Westwood and was championed by her then husband, Malcolm McLaren, who managed the Sex Pistols. I bought two hats that day, and I wore one in a TV interview soon after. No one said anything about the hat. They didn’t notice.” In fact, the hat explosion is a parable about the power of the limelight.

 The ‘Art issue’ of W will be packaged with the publication’s June/July edition and will be available on newsstands May 27.
