Pharrell may be on diaper duty these days (the multi-hyphenate talent and his wife Helen Lasichanh are the proud new parents of triplets) but he’s also making history at Chanel.
As the first man to star in a bag campaign for the French luxury brand, Williams brings his cooler-than-cool personality in the final Gabrielle video. The previous three films starred Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne and Caroline de Maigret.

Pharrell made big news in March when he was announced as the first man to model a Chanel bag in a campaign. Back in December, he walked the runway for the brand's Métiers d'Art show in Paris. Now, he's the star of a campaign film featuring the new Chanel Gabrielle bag.

Stylist and tastemaker Kate Foley demonstrates all seven iterations in one packed day in NYC, in a new video for Bergdorf Goodman (where you can, of course, purchase the Gabrielle). Below, see Foley model the Gabrielle seven different ways and watch the video at the end.

Gabrielle Chanel became known for making clothing and accessories that epitomized the modern day woman, as they were not only elegant, but also functional. Over the past 30 years Karl Lagerfeld has continued to recreate pieces that achieve this quality, and the launch of Chanel's 'Gabrielle' bag collection does exactly this.
Marking the brand's first major bag collection since 'The Boy' in 2011, the collection was introduced during the Spring-Summer 2017 Ready-to-Wear runway show, and is modeled after the binocular cases men used to wear over the shoulder at the racecourse.
