Jay-Z and Pharrell Perform ‘Frontin” at Debut Louis Vuitton Show
Pharrell Williams revealed his breakout collection for Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2024 runway show on Tuesday. His official debut as the fashion house’s new menswear creative director brought a flock of celebrities from Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Zendaya, Megan Thee Stallion, Kim Kardashian, Jared Leto, LeBron James, Naomi Campbell, and Tyler, the Creator in attendance.
After Williams took his bow, he and Jay-Z took the stage to perform for the crowd including “Frontin’” —Williams’s debut single featuring the The Blueprint rapper.
In February, Louis Vuitton announced that Williams would be taking on the role of creative director following the death of Virgil Abloh, who served as the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear collection from 2018 until his death in 2021.
“There are so many other stars in your constellation. Once you realize that the constellation isn’t even your doing, you’re lucky to exist and shine in that moment where the universe has put these things around you to make a sign,” Williams told Vogue on Tuesday ahead of his debut collection. “That is how I felt with this appointment. I woke up and got that call, so I’m honored.” He continued, “I’m continuing to give reverence to the universe for sending this my way.”
Here are more moments from William’s debut show.
