Before her passing, when Zaha Hadid was asked what was her favourite present received in 2015, she answered ‘a Perrin Paris glove clutch’. Upon hearing this, the brand’s founder and creative director Sally Perrin proposed a collaboration with the architectural star. The resulting collection of seven clutches is integrated with three different sculptural metal glove pieces, and each is available in five colours: black, white, blush, lipstick and electric blue.
Speaking to Dezeen, director of Zaha Hadid Design Maha Kutay said, ‘We have always been interested in the strong connection between fashion and jewellery, and this collaboration allowed us to combine both disciplines. Each piece is manufactured in soft leather and integrates Zaha Hadid Design’s signature language with Perrin’s immaculate craftsmanship.’
In mixing jewellery, leather work and architecture, the clutches marry the design styles of Zaha Hadid Design and Perrin Paris to perfection. The closest you’ll come to wearing a mini Zaha Hadid building on your hand, the sculptural pieces feature the fluid form of the renowned architects design language, making them instantly recognisable. ‘We are honoured to unveil this collaboration, which is very dear to our hearts,’ says Perrin. ‘Zaha was an incredible talent, and her work lives on as a testament to her legacy and enduring impact on the architecture and design worlds.’
