Zaha Hadid Design collaborates with Perrin Paris for range of cuffed clutch bags
Zaha Hadid Design and leather brand Perrin Paris have created a limited-edition collection of clutch bags that feature sculptural metal cuffs.
The Perrin Paris x Zaha Hadid collection is made up of seven bags and a combination of three different metal cuffs – a signature feature of Perrin's clutches.
The cuffs bear a resemblance to other jewellery pieces designed by the late architect, and can be worn on either the right or left hand.
"We have always been interested in the strong connection between fashion and jewellery, and this collaboration allowed us to combine both disciplines," said Maha Kutay, director of Zaha Hadid Design.
"Each piece is manufactured in soft leather and integrates Zaha Hadid Design's signature language with Perrin's immaculate craftsmanship."
Hadid, who topped the inaugural Dezeen Hot List, passed away in 2016 following a heart attack. She was known for her interest in fashion, collaborating with a number of labels throughout her career.
She worked on several jewellery designs, including latticed gold filagree rings for Caspita and a series of sinuous pieces for Swarovski, and was among the 26 women asked to contribute outfits for the Women Fashion Power exhibition at London's Design Museum in 2014.
The partnership between the design arm of her architecture firm and Perrin came about after she received one of the brand's clutches as a gift in 2015.
Founder Sally Perrin said she was "honoured" to unveil the collaboration. "Her work lives on as a testament to her legacy and enduring impact on the architecture and design worlds," she said.
Zaha Hadid Design was set up by the architect in 2006, and has created furniture and homeware in partnership with brands including Alessi, Artemide and Sawaya & Moroni.
