Just when we thought Pharrell Williams couldn’t get any cooler, he becomes the first guy to star in Chanel’s upcoming handbag campaign. 

We’re swooning, you’re swooning.

Williams has already appeared in a short video by Karl Lagerfeld and even walked the Chanel runway, and now he’s modelling the Gabrielle bag from the fashion house’s spring collection. 

Set to join Kristen Stewart, Caroline de Maigret and Cara Delevingne in the campaign - with Lagerfeld taking on the role of photographer - Williams star turn is set to debut on Monday 3 April.

In a recent interview with WWD, Williams said he liked the ‘croc’ version for carrying his phone and other things. 

“I was like a nerdy little black kid on a skateboard. So looking at high-end fashion was something that I really didn’t understand in the very beginning,” Williams told WWD.

“And then I realised, slowly but surely, man, this is amazing. And although there’s mostly the perception that it’s for women, I just started to see, OK, as a man I can wear some of this.”

We’re beyond excited to see the finished collaboration - and more men carrying handbags on London’s streets.
