Pharrell Williams may be a hit musician, but he’s also very much known for his unique and stylish fashion sense.

So much that he has been tapped to specially customize an Adidas Hu NMD shoe for Colette’s first floor, WWD reports.

Williams, who is currently featured in Chanel’s Gabrielle bag advertising campaign, has walked the runway for the brand in the past and composed a song for Chanel’s Karl Lagerfield-directed film.

But this is the first time he’s been asked to design a shoe for Chanel.

His shoe will be created exclusive for and by the brand for Colette’s pop-up shop, which has named him their number one customer for two decades.

Chanel plans to donate profits from the Colette pop-up to charity organizations, which will be housed in the store until late November.

Alright now, Pharrell.
