Pharrell Williams always has an exciting project in motion. The music mogul is now releasing a collection of face masks spotlighting designs by change-making artists under his multi-media collective, i am OTHER.
In collaboration with Vistaprint, the collection includes work by creatives Tommy Mitchell, Nikkolas Smith, and Six Sev, each of whom are known for reimagining reality and unapologetically pushing for change through their art.
For the first installment, Mitchell crafted two designs with the saying, “It’s Yours. The World is Yours,” along with a grafitti-inspired floral creation. Smith offered three designs titled “Hope,” “Joy,” and “Love,” each depicting sign language illustrations spelling out those words. In the last set, Sev created two monogram designs — one predominantly green and the other heavily pink — along with an image of a blue-haired angel next to the words, “Pray For The Hood.”
Each reusable face mask is crafted with a replaceable filter, adjustable ear straps, and 2 built-in layers. Adult masks are priced at $22 USD and kids sizes are marked at $15 USD. A portion of the profits from this collaboration will directly support YELLOW, Pharrell’s non-profit focused on creating equal opportunities for youth through education and community.
Elsewhere on Pharrell’s radar, The Goodtime Hotel is officially open for bookings. Take a tour of the visionary’s new hospitality initiative in Miami Beach.
