The multitalented artist, musician, designer and clotheshorse teamed up with the French fashion house on a series of pieces from its 2015/16 Métiers d'Art collection, the brand has been revealed.

A video clip from Chanel shows the star helping out in the brand's 'Maison d'Art' atelier, working with craftsmen such as embroiderer Lesage, flower maker Lemarié, pleater Lognon, shoe maker Massaro and hat maker Maison Michel on a range of unique pieces which will go on sale in the house's boutiques this June.

Chanel hasn't divulged any further details about the pieces just yet, but the clip suggests we can expect plenty of sequins, stenciling and flower appliqué details on the intricate-looking garments.

Williams, described in a statement from Chanel as 'a close friend of the House of Chanel and personal friend of Karl Lagerfeld', is known almost as much for his interest in fashion and design as for his musical influence. In March 2014 he was signed up as ‘collaborator and spokesperson' for Uniqlo's UT t-shirt line, with his creative collective 'i am OTHER' hitting stores later that year. He has also previously teamed up with Adidas Originals on a limited-edition sneaker and sportswear collaboration in addition to fronting his own G-Star RAW clothing collection.
