When Takashi Murakami Meets Pharrell Williams

What we missed at Art Basel this year:

The bastard child of artist Takashi and rapper Pharrell and Jeweler Jacob

And if that chip bag looks bling out to you, you'd be right! "Simple Things" is encrusted with diamonds and fancy gems... selling for $2.8 MILLION!
“It’s made with 26,000 diamonds and gems,” said Williams, who was standing next to the glass-encased sculpture and its watchful security guard. “I wanted people to see the value of simple things with some of the staples of American culture.”
Yeah, whatever Pharrell. I think you just the shiny.
