I've never really been a puffy vest kind of girl, but after flipping through this month's J.Crew catalog about a million times and reading about Pharrel's Bionic vest for Moncler, I suddenly need one. The musician's designed a special collection for the luxury puffer brand. His vests and jackets come in black, all black and only black, including one vest in particular he's billed as a bullet proof vest for pacifists. Inside, the jackets and vests are printed with images - mostly of nature after dark - by Japanese artist Keita Sugiura. The range will drop in Fall 2010, no word on price points or stockists yet. But every piece uses fabric from Bionic, Pharrell's three-year-old company that makes yarn from recycled plastic bottles. If I'm venturing into puffer territory I'll probably stick with something more like this, though between Pharrell and Giambattista Valli the idea of fancy down outerwear's growing on me.
