How does one know they’ve made it?
Well here’s a fine example. There was a fancy Chanel fashion show in Paris overnight but eagle-eyed watch goers wouldn’t have batted an eyelid. What they would have noticed was a particular luxury timepiece wrapped around the wrist of Pharrell Williams – a Richard Mille RM 70-01 Tourbillon Alain Prost Watch which retails for an insane US$815,500 and is limited to just 30 pieces worldwide.
Williams paired the extravagant timepiece with a Chanel sweater featuring an integrated collar and contrasting double ‘C’ logo and matching Chanel sunglasses. The look was polished off with cropped denim and polished black lace-ups.
Not a bad look to contrast the perennially monochrome (and now bearded) Karl Lagerfeld.
Pharrell’s million dollar question begs one question though: How should one wear a million dollar watch? Like any other standard watch – duh.
At the recent Parklife music festival Williams was seen rocking the same Richard Mille RM 70-01 Tourbillon Alain Prost on stage with little caution to the wind. We guess when you’ve got that much in the bank, air time and a decent shimmy far outweighs a minor scuff on an exclusive timepiece.
Mr. Williams, we salute you, you crazy talented S.O.B. Scroll down to see how he wore it.
