Pharrell & Kanye at the Louis Vuitton Menswear Show

Pharrell & Kanye looking like BFFs

As Kanye says, “Cuz it’s Louis Vuitton Don night”. . . the self-proclaimed LV Don’s Kanye West and Pharrell Williams were at the 2009 Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer Menswear Show in Paris yesterday. As expected, both men were stylish in their own way.

One of my favorite looks from the show.
I really like the subtle two-tone shirt, the airy blue and sand colors really compliment each other. The jacket is cool too- really simple and clean.

Kanye has alot going on in this look, but I really like the shoes and the buttons- which includes a Micheal Jackson button. Why, you may ask. . .b/c it’s different and a cool accessory that most men don’t take advantage of.
Pharrell keeps his look very casual as well, he has a b-boy prep look going on. He wears that BBC shirt and those Rayban wayfarer shades every time he gets a chance, huh?
I like it though
. . . it’s always good to have certain signature looks in your style.

Who has the better casual look,
Kanye or Pharrell?

The Man + Purse: Murses & Manbags

Pharrell Williams has a $67,000 purple/pink crocodile
Hermes bag


When men first began carrying bags that were traditionally worn by women people laughed- they laughed loud and they laughed hard. But with some of manliest men and top style gurus strutting . . . I mean walking around with these bags you have to ask yourself- is it really THAT bad? Some people think that the "man-bag" portrays 1 of 2 things: you're self-absorbed or you like men. I'm thinking that stigma is changing. The list of of men who rock "murses" grows everyday: Pharrell, David Beckham, Lupe Fiasco, Tom Brady, Seal, Kanye West, Ryan Reynolds, and Terrence Howard just to name a few.

Terrence Howard w/ his black patent & leather crocodile

Seal w/ a black leather murse

 

Tom Brady w/ an army fatigue murse

 

In his interview with Paper Magazine Pharrell talks about his murse/travel bag:

“Don’t call it a murse,” says PHARRELL, pulling out his second look from the gargantuan purple croc HERMES tote, which he has accessorized with another JACOB key chain, this one covered in yellow diamonds to match the bag’s gold hard-ware.

“It’s not a man purse. It’s my travel bag.”

PHARRELL says style is… "about who you are, where you’re going, what’s comfortable…It’s your attitude that makes it hot.”

“It’s not that I’m necessarily proud of being a nerd,” says PHARRELL. “It’s who I am.”
 

Pharrell is truly stuntin' with his 2 Hermes murses,
he's so proud!
I think he's an advocate for the murses, he'll probably start a non-profit in support of men carrying bags that look like purses. . . (I'm just playin')

Personally, I think it's okay for a man to have a bag especially if it's a satchel or messenger- I think they look great. It just becomes a little questionable when he carries it like a purse, you know under his arm like Tom Brady or the way Terrence Howard does. Pharrell's purple color choice is a bit feminine. . . it's kind of cool, but then it's not at the same time. These huge bags are very appropriate for travel, but not so much for just walking around the streets on a daily basis like below. . . (cough cough) Pharrell:

So how do you feel about murses & man-bags?
