Jun 13, 2012 13:43
Pharrell and Mark McNairy collaborated for the "BEE" line, and lifestyle and fashion mag Complex manage to catch up with the two to talk about the inspirations behind the line. Here's an excerpt of the interview. Check out the full interview from Complex.
What inspired the BBC collection? Pharrell: The main BBC collection is continuing with the outdoor lifestyle and all the usual stuff. It’s the next iteration of where we are with the DNA of the brand and trying to progress forward with our colors, patterns, and the things we feel like make us, “us.” BBC started out heavy with all-over prints, especially in hoodies, and now you guys have got critter pants and all-over print polo shirts, is that a natural, classier progression of BBC? Are you paying homage to that sort of heritage of the brand? Pharrell: Maybe it’s homage, or maybe it’s just what we feel right now. That’s gonna change. Next year it’s gonna look completely different.
So what kind of things are you feeling right now? Pharrell: Extra denim. The more denim, the better.
Yeah, you’re definitely rocking some drop-crotch jeans with a lot of fabric bunching right now. Do you think that’s a future trend? Pharrell: I don’t know for anyone else, but for me. I did these for myself. I even customized my boots. I think the biggest trend right now is customization. You could either get it bespoke somewhere or you could do it yourself, and I try to do a little of both.
What about the color schemes of the BEE Line? Pharrell: Well let me bring Mark over for that. Mark, can you speak to the colors that we chose?
Mark: We used a lot of yellow accents because of the whole “BEE” thing, such as yellow pocket lining.
What about the use of tweeds, herringbones, and more menswear-influenced fabrications and patterns in the line? Mark: Yeah, I was trying to merge traditional menswear and streetwear.
A disguise that's good enough will render anyone unrecognizable. And that's what professional stunt driver Leona Chin did when she was enlisted to prank a couple of driving instructors. We think we'd get a heart attack too if we were in the car. Check it out below: Read more
What can you expect if Michael Bay directed 'Girls'? There won't be explosion, but there's one thing you can really expect: hot girls in the show because Michael Bay can only cast these types. Read more
