  • A visionary architect celebrated for her fluid and organic constructions, Zaha Hadid revolutionised the approach to architecture and design. Yet far from her typical maquettes, she was so inspired by her meeting with Charlotte Olympia in 2015 that together they conceived a capsule collection. And in these two objects we cannot help but perceive the very essence of the iconic Iraqi architect who passed away last year.

     

    Undulating plexiglass and metal for the minaudière, with leather added for the pumps, the English designer deftly reproduces the world unique to Zaha Hadid. “Zaha Hadid is one of the most extraordinary people I have ever met, her work and her aesthetic are inexhaustible sources of inspiration for me. It was an honour and a privilege to work alongside her and to continue working with her incredible team in the context of this fabulous collaboration,” explains Charlotte.
