Mt. Pharell

You know you have made it in life when you turn into a one-name icon like Cher and Madonna. Who these days doesn’t know of Pharell? He is practically everywhere as the lead of N.E.R.D, half of mega music producers The Neptunes and fashion designer extraordinaire. He is pretty much the definition of a mogul or, in my mind, a mountain.

I have grown to realize over the last couple of months what it takes to literally do it all. As I mentioned back in January, I am in the process of opening my own business and have really seen it come from an idea to a reality (I will shortly reveal my plans to you, but will wait until we are open to let you all in).

Getting back to Pharell, I really wanted to applaud his overall knack for design and way of life. It is very rare to come from the music industry, or acting in general, and to properly launch a successful clothing line with credibility. He has launched three cult classics lines including Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream, and acts as one of the creative directors of A Bathing Ape. He even designed his own collection for Moncler and created a line of tank chairs for the Emmanuel Perrotin Gallery and Art Bassel in Miami.

Personally, I am a firm believer in the idea that those who eat, sleep, and breathe their passions excel at them as Pharell has done. My pet peeve is when you have an out of shape trainer/doctor telling you to lose weight; Seriously! I wouldn’t take fashion cues from someone who can’t dress. He is a great motivator and role model in my life; I can only hope to be 1/5 successful as him.
