Pharrell Williams for ‘WSJ.’ Magazine Men’s Style September 2014 by Peter Lindbergh
Pharrell Williams appears on the cover of the men’s style issue for WSJ. magazine, out on newsstands September 13, donning a Dior Homme jacket, waistcoat and shirt. The cover story was written by Robert Haskell with images courtesy of German photographer and filmmaker Peter Lindbergh. In the interview, Skateboard P delves into a multitude of topics, far too many to mention. Here are several excerpts below:
Pharrell’s conversation occasionally veers into runic New Age–speak, though it embarrasses him to have this pointed out. His comments have the tidy, affirmative style of a life coach: “Go inward, so that you can go onward and then upward,” he says. At other times they sound like echoes of an ayahuasca trip: “The movie of life is a kaleidoscopic time lapse of co-creation.”
It’s tempting to regard all this as a deft obfuscation, a clever way to keep his personal life out of view. And yet Pharrell glimmers with something like a sense of enlightenment. “It took me a minute to find my purpose,” he says. “I knew something was missing, and then I realized, OK, you’re able to make music; now you have to inject purpose. I want to make music with something extra to it—a holistic property. I want to make it feel good. I’m not the only one doing this. Kendrick Lamar’s music feels amazing. Adele’s music feels amazing. Alicia [Keys]‘s new album feels amazing. The distinction between sounding amazing and feeling amazing—that’s the thing. People, I think, are looking for a feeling.”
For the moment, there are few juggernauts quite like Pharrell himself. Beyond the music, television and video games is a media empire that includes a pair of clothing lines—Billionaire Boys Club and ICECREAM, its sister brand. The adidas collaboration is one of many. Pharrell owns a company called Bionic Yarn that turns plastics into textiles, and he is curating a line of clothing made from the fiber for the denim brand G-Star Raw. This month, Comme des Garçons will release a fragrance composed by Pharrell called “G I R L,” a name that conveniently ties in with his latest album.
Rei Kawakubo, Comme des Garçon’s founder and designer, is one of Pharrell’s idols, and she inhabits a pantheon that includes Koons, Walt Disney, Coco Chanel, Takashi Murakami and Stevie Wonder—artists united by a rigorous utopianism, if little else. “These are people,” Pharrell explains, “who had epiphanies and then did something with them. As I see it, you can live two ways. You can live life the way you always imagined it would play out, or you can try to make the thing you dream of making. If you choose the second, get ready for an amazing ride. That’s the ride I’m on.”
