Pharrell is currently the lead designer over at Louis Vuitton, which is a huge accomplishment. Of course, he takes over from the likes of Virgil Abloh, who was an absolute legend. From Off-White to Louis Vuitton, Abloh made a massive impact on the fashion world. Overall, he remains a revered designer whose influence will never go away. That said, some were surprised that Pharrell got the job at Louis Vuitton. However, he has been making the most of it and has already come through with his very first collection.
Recently, Pharrell spoke about his role with Louis Vuitton and how he was just as surprised as everyone else about the appointment. He describes a conversation with LV CEO Pietro Beccari who was aggressive in offering him the role. Regardless, he was happy to accept. “It wasn’t an interview or anything,” Pharrell explained. “It was like, ‘Will you accept this position? Will you accept this appointment?’ I’m looking at the water and I’m just like, ‘What?’”

However, Pharrell did not that he was surprised Nigo wasn't given a chance. “I’ve been championing him for a minute," Williams revealed. "And whenever me and Alexandre [Arnault] talk about LV, we would always just talk about different people. I’ve always been in the background, just advising. I never thought that it would be me.”
