Zaha Hadid's Influence on Fashionby  TRI-KES 

August 30, 2017 |

Fashionista recently wrote an interesting article entitled "Why Does Architecture Have Influence on Fashion — and Can It Go the Other Way?" where they explored the parallels between the two creative fields. With the recent launch of our Zaha Hadid Hommage specialty collection of wallcoverings, we were especially interested in what the Fashionista article said about Zaha Hadid.

According to Fashionista, "Hadid is both well-known in the fashion world and regarded as a legend in the field of architecture; she worked with high-end brands, playing a role in creating Chanel's Mobile Art Pavilion, for example, and also tried her hand at fashion design, collaborating with United Nude, Georg Jensen, Fendi, Melissa and Bulgari, among others. Her creations were more structural, naturally, spanning from jewelry and shoes to handbags. During Marc Jacobs's tenure at Louis Vuitton, he invited Hadid to design her own version of the French house's iconic bucket bag, which was on display at a special "Icones" exhibit in Paris in 2006."

Zaha Hadid's influence can clearly be seen in the above accessory photos, and it's fascinating to see how distinct her style resonates in everything from shoes and a handbag to the large-scale designs and murals from our Zaha Hadid wallcovering collection (shown below).
