Pharrell Wiliams + Moncler

Cardboard boombox, Ai Weiwei selfies, Greg Packer's ban and more in our look at the web this week

Pharrell has been the master of collaboration this summer, lending his voice to chart-topping hits with Daft Punk and Robin Thicke. He is now teaming up once again with French luxury fashion label Moncler, known for their high-end quilted ski jackets, to design a collection of three pairs of sunglasses, each made from a single piece of titanium. This is Pharrell’s second collaboration with the clothing brand; he designed an outerwear collection for Moncler a couple of years back. The singer modeled a pair of sunglasses from the upcoming collection on Instagram—the unisex styles are futuristic steampunk and perhaps inspired by his French colleagues Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, for the sunglasses are oversized and worn conceptually like a mask.
