Pharrell & Diddy Attend Silencio Art Basel Popup, Hosted by GREY GOOSE Vodka

SILENCIO & MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT Event Curated by Pharrell Williams & Takashi Murakami

Art Basel Miami Beach 2013 is in full effect! A lot of celebs, music artists, artists and film makers are in Miami for the festivities. Cassie was photo’d at Art Basel 2013 and Angela Simmons hit up DuJour magazine’s event to honor artist Marc Quinn at Delano Beach Club.

YDBR latest sighting was Pharrell Williams and Diddy. Last night Wednesday (December 4), Silencio once again brought the legendary Paris nightclub to the heart of the Design District with a pop-up lounge.  This highly anticipated event was hosted by Pharell Williams and contemporary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and featured music by DJ Mike and specialty GREY GOOSE cocktails.

David Lynch, filmmaker and artist, worked with designer Raphael Navot, architectural agency Enia and light designer Thierry Dreyfus, to conceive and design “Silencio” inspired by the club from Lynch’s 2001 film Mulholland Drive.

It was the hottest party of the night – Pharrell arrived with Diddy early in the evening and made their rounds, mingling with pals and posing for photos.  Later, Pharrell took to the stage for an energetic performance that spurred a massive conga line around the room.

Pharrell Williams Speaks On Losing His Virginity At 16 & Liking Powerful Women

Music producer and fashion designer Pharrell Williams made his rounds during New York’s Fashion Week. The 39-year-old mogul is engaged to his son’s (Rocket) mother, model and designer Helen Lasichanh. The press caught up with the V.A. native on the red carpet and he spoke about liking powerful women, losing his virginity at a young age, and he also admitted that he does not like it when females play games. Below are some excerpts:

On liking powerful women:

“I like powerful women – women with some life experience – and I’m very attracted to intelligence.”

On losing his virginity at a young age:

“I lost my virginity when I was 16. She was older than me, and age has been a fetish of mine ever since.”

On females that plays game:

“No games! That’s a major turn-off. A girl who plays games makes me run the other way because I’m like, ‘This chick is crazy’. Just keep it honest, fun and light.”

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.”
