His talents extend beyond the recording room

as he is also regarded by some as a bit of a fashion statement maker –

gracing the covers/pages of magazines as testament.

Although a unique style – setter in his own right,

the origins of Pharrell’s Grammy creative head-dress, can be traced to

the 1982 a/w Vivienne Westwood collection ‘Buffalo Girl’

(in collaboration with Macolm McLaren)

This mass outpouring of commentaries on Pharrell’s Buffalo hat seems

 cultural commentary on the bond between

the music and fashion industries: as dwelling reflection of one in the other.

 

Over thirty years has passed since

the Buffalo hat was a fashion runway sensation –

and 2014 witness it centre stage at the music industry’s gala night.

Ah … the ever cyclical quality of fashion:

what’s out, is really what’s in (again).

Pharrell, cheers for the reminder .
