Pharrell has made his love of Vivienne Westwood Worlds End Mountain Hats no secret, even more so in his new Marilyn Monroe video where he chooses a different colour for each scene! ┬áI still don’t think he owns more than my buddy Alquin but he sure has a fine collection! Thanks to Raf for these images.

Being the font of all Westwood knowledge I’ve had a few questions regarding Pharrell Williams choice of head-gear for last nights Grammy awards. I can confirm it is a Vivienne Westwood Worlds End Mountain hat which he has worn on numerous other occasions. These hats were a fundamental element of the Buffalo look which originated in the Westwood-McLaren Nostalgia of Mud collection AW1982-83 and have graced the heads of those ballsy enough to wear them ever since. Pharrell gets extra cool points for his leather Adidas 3-stripe red leather jacket – I feel like I need one in my life! My girl Lauran already wrote a detailed post about Pharrells hat so do check it out. Purchased details can be made via the Worlds End blog / shop, the hats cost a very reasonable ┬ú85 and are still hand made in England.
┬áOne of the many Pharell’s hat memes, this one made me chuckle
