Curator Corner: Pharrell Williams
We’ve been checking out Pharrell Williams’ exquisite taste in camo and military for quite a few years now. So when we came across his collection curated for eBay entitled “March”, our mouths dropped. It turns out he located some pretty wonderfully authentic items even a solider cold don.
Take a look at all other items he found for “March”, including tents and field radio phones. It will make you proud to be an American. To see the rest of Pharrell’s creative collections on eBay, you can follow him here.

After much of the country got hit with heavy snow this weekend, we began to think about preparing for the next round. What should every weather-ready girl have in her closet? A pair of Sorel boots, of course. We love the “Joan of Arctic” style seen here. Click here to purchase… before the blizzard comes.

Currently, he owns and runs “I Love You As A Person”, a Production/Creative company focused on video and music content while serving as the DP/Editor for i am OTHER, Pharrell Wiliams’ YouTube. In the midst of all this juggling, Gabe managed to sit down and speak to The Inside Source about what gets him up every morning — a fun loving hunger to create!
