Pharrell’s Louis Vuitton artistic direction has spawned breathtaking creations showcased at his debut runway show. However, no design has grabbed attention like the “Millionaire Bag.”
The bright yellow crocodile leather bag is covered in white LV symbols. In addition to its light brown handles, the Millionaire Bag sports a genuine gold chain and diamond-encrusted padlock on the side. Also known as the Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag, the duffle was first unveiled in Pharrell’s campaign, which featured a pregnant Rihanna holding several colors of the bright bags.
With so much attention to detail, it’s no secret that the bag is actually priced at a staggering $1 million. Pharrell himself was spotted rocking the bag during Junya Watanabe’s fashion show, front row alongside his wife, fellow designer Helen Lasichanh.

There has been much pressure for Pharrell to deliver his first men’s collection in his new role, once filled by the late Virgil Abloh. Many celebrities turned out to support him during his inaugural Paris Fashion Week show. Kelly Rowland, Beyonce, Zendaya, and Offset were just a handful of stars who flew across the world to see the pieces. Jay-Z also hit the stage with Pharrell to perform their 2003 hit, “Change Clothes.”
While it’s unclear whether or not the Millionaire Bag will be available for everyone, it will undoubtedly be a highly sought-after delicacy among the world’s richest.
