The collaboration between Takashi Murakami, Pharrell Williams, and Jacob & Co. was finally unveiled at Art Basel, and it sold within twenty minutes for a whopping $2 million. The piece, called "The Simple Things," features seven of Pharrell's favorite items: Johnson's Baby Lotion, condoms, Doritos, ketchup, a can of Pepsi, a cupcake, and a sneaker, re-created in metal and diamonds. Lots and lots of diamonds. Not exactly what we think of when we think "simple." High Snobriety has a video featuring Pharrell discussing the work, and the simple things in life that get "overlooked." "These things are the glue to my personality," he says. Hear that, Johnson & Johnson? We feel a spokesperson deal coming on.
