Notable features

In 2018, Pharrell decided to honor the Holi Indian festival—or the Festival of Colors—by launching the Holi Blank Canvas Collection (or Holi BC) in the 23rd of February. This collection featured all-white Stan Smith, Tennis Hu, and NMD Hu shoes as well as a knitted top, also in white. The white color signifies the uniform of each devotee at the start of the festival.

The Holi Festival is held in celebration of spring’s arrival, the triumph of good over evil, and as an enactment of a game that the god Krishna and his consort Radha played with milkmaids. The Hindus celebrate this by splattering each other with powdered paint.

In the 16th day of March of the same year, Pharrell completed his Holi Festival collection by coming out with the Festival/Holi MC (Multi-colored) Pack. The shoes in this collection are supposed to signify the aftermath of the festival after everyone has been drenched with brilliantly-colored powder dyes.

These kicks carry that typical NMD swag but improved with Pharrell’s creative mark. Two colorways look drenched in powder dye, while one carries a solid black hue. 3M laces in the trademark Hu lace cage system provide a subtle flash under low light conditions. Trail soles complete the casual look.
