Pharrell looked undeniably cozy at Chanel’s Spring 2022 couture show in Paris. The musician was part of a star-studded front row that included Margot Robbie, Sophia Coppola and Vanessa Paradis, among others.
The N.E.R.D. vocalist arrived in a maroon Chanel cardigan. The knit number featured long sleeves and a knee-length hem, as well as pink tweed piping, cuffs and front pockets. Layered over lightly distressed blue jeans and a purple T-shirt, the comfy piece gave a softer side to Pharrell’s colorful personal style. The musician accessorized with a gold Chanel chain belt and orb-shaped clutch, as well as a yellow baseball cap and pearl-rimmed sunglasses.
Pharrell’s footwear of choice was a pair of brown leather boots. The calf-high style featured curved uppers and rounded toes, giving his toasty ensemble a utilitarian edge. The pair featured white rubber soles with a ridged texture, reminiscent of sneakers. The eclectic shoes added greater quirk to the “Blurred Lines” musician’s casual look.
Leather boots are a versatile winter trend. With calf, ankle or knee-high uppers, pairs in black or brown leather add a toughness to most looks. Styles with thicker soles like Pharrell’s also bring most outfits a whimsical and combat-ready edge. Aside from the “Happy” singer’s shoes, similar boots have emerged in new collections from Taft, Tecovas and Diesel.
Pharrell’s quirky style encompasses a range of footwear. The musician can be seen on the red carpet in loafers and dress shoes from brands like Chanel, which he’s been close to for years—even designing a unisex Pharrell x Chanel capsule collection in 2019. Pharrell also wears comfy boots on and off the red carpet from Timberland and Ugg, as well as Adidas sneakers. The musician is a top figure in the fashion world, collaborating with Adidas on his own Humanrace apparel and shoe line and launching his own Humanrace skincare brand in 2020.
