With the success of his Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream lines, it only makes sense that Pharrell is extending his burgeoning empire in new directions.
Skateboard P recently revealed to WWD that he plans on launching Billionaire Girls Club by spring 2013. The producer-singer-turned-designer hinted that he may eventually expand so-called "streetwear" at some point, at least if his fashion role models are any indication: “Every Comme des Garçons show is just perfection, and Alber Elbaz is a genius, too," P said. "So is Marc Jacobs. I am so inspired by each one of them. They are totally imaginative. I wish to be that way one day.”
The 38-year-old also said he's working on a new book, Places & Spaces I’ve Been (shouts to Donald Byrd!). He's writing the book with designer Ambra Medda, co-founder/director of Design Miami and Design Miami/Basel and host of the recent Cooper-Hewitt National Design Awards, where Pharrell was a presenter.
In the meantime, Pharrell is keeping busy with plans to launch new BBC locations in China, as well as a collaboration with Ivy League’s former creative director Mark McNairy on shoes to be released next February.
