Pharrell Williams is taking his partnership with Adidas Originals to the next level. The producer/singer/designer is launching a colorful sneaker and apparel collection, "Hu," in collaboration with the brand. “Hu is short for human – human being, human race, humankind,” said Pharrell. “But Hu, itself is also a reference to color. As human beings, we all have a color. We all look different, we all speak different languages, but we’re all connected.”
