Get your caffeine fix this Paris Fashion Week at the Pharrell x adidas Sambas pop-up café

I think we can all agree that Pharrell Williams is a man and an artist who doesn't rest on his laurels... ever. And this year's Paris Men's Fashion Week is shaping up to be, perhaps, the next big moment in Williams' perennially burgeoning sartorial career.

The newly minted Louis Vuitton men's creative director will be showing his debut collection with the French fashion House during the week (on 20 June to be exact), while also showing his sub-label Humanrace some love via a pop-up cafe in collaboration with adidas Sambas.

The Samba Café is set to be hosted by retailer The Broken Arm, located in the upper Marais district, from June 22 until June 24, and promises to offer a street-level coffee spot that pays homage to the iconic Parisian nooks the city is known for. As for what will be on the menu? High-quality coffee and curated menu items, alongside – of course – highlighting Williams' Humanrace x adidas Samba's sneaker collaboration in three exclusive colourways. The limited-edition Samba Humanrace models will be dished out on a first-come, first-served basis to visiting guests. So once they're gone, they're gone!

The exclusive colourways include Terracotta, Charcoal and White ECCO leather – each of which will cost you around $200 a pop. The tonal collection is a far cry from the pair's collaboration from April this year, which packed a candy-coloured punch in vibrant lilacs, Barbie pinks, and full bodied reds, greens and yellows.

If all of this wasn't enough, Williams will also be introducing and hosting a special public preview of Just Phriends at Paris Men's Fashion Week, an auction curated in partnership with Sarah Andelman, featuring over 50 unique lots of rare and bespoke artworks, objects and exclusive collaborations, curated by none other than Williams himself.
