Pharrell Williams is known for his many fashion collaborations, from G-Star to Billionaire Boys Club to Chanel, but his partnership with adidas, which began in 2014 with a slick line of Stan Smith sneakers and track jackets signaled a deeper collaboration ahead.
We need more love," Pharrell Williams says to me, sitting in a hotel suite in downtown New York City. "We need love, man." And he's right. For many of us, there's never been a time where it was more clear that we need more love in this world. It's from that root need that he launched his latest campaign with Adidas named, in writing at least, Quiet Please. (with the intentional strikethrough). You can call it "Don't Be Quiet Please."
