Published by Rizzoli, this unique catalog delves into Pharrell’s confessed “pricey obsession” with jewelry, offering a glimpse into the profound role it plays in his life. Featuring over a hundred artistically crafted and customized pieces, it encompasses a wide spectrum of creations by the multi-talented Pharrell. These include the iconic gem-studded N.E.R.D. Brain pendants, a collaborative effort with renowned brands like Louis Vuitton and Jacob & Co., as well as inventive reinterpretations of Casio G-Shock watches. Beyond the dazzling jewelry, the catalog engages in personal dialogues with Pharrell’s close confidants, NIGO and Yoon Ahn of AMBUSH, individuals who share his fervor for all things jewelry. Notably, Yoon Ahn joined Pharrell at the grand unveiling of the catalog at Cravan, a distinguished cocktail bar in the heart of Paris.
“Like everything else he’s done, Pharrell Williams has innovated within this fashion space [hip-hop jewellery]: the use of colour in pendants, the incorporation of natural and man-made diamonds to create colour and texture…”– Ian Luna from Rizzoli
