Pharrell Williams & Mark McNairy Joins Forces For ‘Bee Line For Billionaire Boys Club’

Music producer and fashion designer Pharrell Williams joins forces with menswear designer Mark McNairy for a new line called Bee Line for Billionaire Boys Club. In GQ, the duo talks fashion. Some highlights are below:

Making the Band

Mark McNairy: 
“I always liked what Pharrell did with Billionaire Boys Club—it’s like preppy streetwear. We started by collaborating on one shoe. We talked about doing clothes, and eventually it evolved into a full made-in-the-U.S.A. collection.”

The Line Between Streetwear and Menswear
McNairy: “In my head, there is no line.”
Pharrell: “I don’t know lines. I understand the concept, but it’s just not fun to work inside a box.”

Working with Pharrell
McNairy: “I came in confident. Then I started hearing how picky Pharrell is, so I got a little nervous. We had our initial meetings and decided what the direction should be. When I took all the prototypes to Miami, he loved everything.”

Working with McNasty
Pharrell: “He’s very quirky and a quiet guy, but also funny as hell. Within all that quirkiness, he’s very confident. The man just clicks.”

The One Piece That Says It All
McNairy: “It’s definitely the gold- and silver-sleeve varsity jackets. I was in the factory and saw a metallic scrap on the floor. I ran to 35th Street, bought the leather, and bam.”
