Man with the Midas touch, Pharrell, had troubles launching his 2 clothing lines, Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream, both of which are designed by his mate Nigo. He even ended up in court about it. Nevertheless, he persevered, and got there in the end and frankly I think there’s a lesson there for all of us.
Like Nigo’ other label, A Bathing Ape, BBC references pop art and popular culture with its bright colours and cartoonish designs. Ice Cream however, moves bag and baggage into a comic book world of ice lollies and neon shades, and this is where Mr Williams and I go our separate ways. Its like Mr Whippy on acid and I find it a bit clownish.
However, I do like this waffle print laptop case available from We Sold Out. I’d happily dress my computer in this print, just don’t ask me to put it on my back…
