Choo Choo! Pharrell Williams Designs a Line of Bags Shaped Like Trains
Pharrell Williams’s latest design project is right on track! The Voice coach is unquestionably the man of many fashion collaborations—Comme des Garçons, Adidas, Uniqlo, and Louis Vuitton are among those that have called on his talents—but his latest endeavor may be his most unique yet. French luxury leather goods brand Moynat is set to release a collection of train-inspired accessories designed by the singer later this month.
Inspired by a collection of vintage trunks and an old Moynat label featuring a train that Williams discovered during a visit to the label's atelier in Paris, the line includes luxe pieces that put a fun-yet-refined twist on the American railroad car. Meant to appeal to the "inner child" in each of us, the Moynat x Pharrell Williams collection will include train pochettes available in seven different color variations that feature a graphic toy locomotive (above), a train bag created in hand tooled resin (below), a train clutch made of hand sculpted Ebony wood, and scarves covered in railroad graphics.
Look for the collaboration when it launches exclusively at Colette in Paris on October 13 and then at Moynat boutiques in Paris, London, and Dover Street Market in New York City on October 20.
