After serving Chanel in almost every way possible, Pharrell Williams has been tapped by the French fashion house to design a capsule collection.

The 45-year-old musician’s line will include both ready-to-wear and accessories, according to WWD, and is set to debut on March 29, 2019 in Seoul, South Korea.

And while no photos have been released of Williams’ forthcoming designs, the “Happy” singer donned a bright yellow sweatshirt with Chanel logos during the brand’s recent event in Bangkok, Thailand, which could be a sneak peek.

Williams and Chanel go way back: The prolific producer has appeared in campaigns, composed a song for an original film by Karl Lagerfeld for its Paris-Salzburg show and collaborated with Adidas on a Chanel installation at Colette in Paris last year.  He even walked the runway at Chanel’s 2017 Metier d’Arts show.

And this is far from Williams’ first foray into fashion design. He has his own brand, Billionaire Boys Club, and has worked with designers including Louis Vuitton, Comme des Garçons, Bape, Nike and many more.

Colin Kaepernick Is The Face Of Nike’s 30th Anniversary of ‘Just Do It’ Campaign

Nike is with Colin Kaepernick ✊✊✊

Nike has selected former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick as the face of its “Just Do It” campaign, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

Darren Rovell of ESPN reported the choice of Kaepernick, who started the movement to kneel during the United States national anthem to protest racial injustice in August 2016.

The sports brand unveiled a new ad to commemorate the 30th anniversary of their ‘Just Do It’ campaign starring the former NFL quarterback.

In the ad, Colin is looking at the camera, and printed over the image is: “Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt.”

Colin has been a Nike athlete since 2011, but the he has not played on a team since 2016.

It’s certainly a powerful statement. As we’re just getting into the NFL season, it’ll be interesting to hear how Nike and the football community reacts.

A fresh pair of slides is a must for the summer season. And with the resurgence of the  fanny pack , Nike has in turn combined the two warm weather trends to present its new Benassi “Fanny Pack” slides

They’re part eye-sore, part genius, part hypebeast fever dream, and if you end up losing your keys because you lost your shoes, that’s unfortunately all on you.

If you’re looking for something to motivate you to “Go Hard,” there’s no one to better amp you up then than multi-talented Eccentric FKA Twigs. As the creative director for Nike’s new Zonal Strength Tights campaign, Twigs has created an amazing new vision that groups Olympic athletes, track stars, and dancers alike.
Said Twigs in an open letter for the campaign, “When Nike reached out to me about collaborating together on this project, I saw it as an opportunity to inspire people who want to use their bodies in a positive way.” Twigs goes on to share more thoughts about the intersection of creativity and athleticism.

“Since as early as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with training and taking classes. When I was three years old, I started taking dance classes at a local youth center and by the time I turned seven, I was training in six different dance styles.”

“You have to be incredibly in tune with yourself and focused to be able to compete or create – vulnerability and strength have a lot to do with this.”

“As an athlete, in your final moments of competition – everything you’ve done, everything your parents have sacrificed and everyone who has supported you are there in that one second. You have to accept your destiny and have both the physical power, willpower to do what you need to do.”

“I cast a group of amazing people who take their physicality seriously and have their own sense of style, in order to push people to be healthy and understand, through any genre of sport, they can be the best versions of themselves.”

“People don’t always see dancers as athletes, but we are.”

“As a dancer, I try to embrace my fragility and accept that where I’m at is good enough. Dancers are taught to always looking in the mirror, from an early age, making sure we have perfect alignment. There comes a point when you just have to let go and trust that you’re going to get where you need to be.”

“For me the dream is that you don’t even realize you’re working out. You’re just doing you, and then the results come, and you value them as they’re happening.”

“When I’m dancing, I’m not thinking about working on my abs or my legs. But if I train hard, I feel so confident in my body. Just through training, enjoying music, being with my friends, and exploring my body, all of a sudden I feel stronger.”

“Overall, dance makes you realize that there’s beauty in the imperfections. I think that’s what can make it most intriguing for people to watch.”

“I truly believe that success is when preparation meets opportunity. It’s the same with any creative endeavor or athletic journey.”

“It’s not about the moment you jump off the diving board. It’s not about any one beat you’ve produced. It’s about the moments before that – the preparation is the training, the hard work and the opportunity is the moment you reach your fastest time, how creative you can be, or how good your beat is.”
