Designer Sally Perrin worked with Hadid’s team on the distinctive designs available on Farfetch.com.

Mike and Irina Medavoy, Gelila and Wolfgang Puck, Katherine and Jane Ross and several other stylish folks gathered at the Coldwater Canyon home of accessories designer Sally Perrin and her husband Michel on Wednesday night to celebrate a most unusual collaboration.

Perrin partnered with the late starchitect Zaha Hadid on a collection of bags with extraordinary sculpted metal clasps, inspired by Hadid’s deconstructionist style. The collaboration was hatched before Hadid’s death in March 2016, and completed with the help of her design team in London. The bags are available for sale exclusively on Farfetch.com starting Monday.

“I was reading the London FT in March 2015 and I came across an article, it was an interview with Zaha Hadid, and she was asked about the favorite gift she had received, to which she responded a Perrin glove clutch,” the designer said of how the whole thing started. “I was beyond thrilled, and I reached out to her to propose a collaboration.”

When Hadid passed away unexpectedly, Perrin says she assumed the deal would be off. But that the architect's team wanted to continue with the project, and worked with the designer to create the distinctive clasps on the clutch bags, which echo themes in Hadid's award-winning structures.

“It’s important she be ever present in this collection by way of her favorite colors, and the various sculpted pieces made by her team in London,” Perrin told the crowd seated outside for dinner. “And the calla lilies on the table were her favorite flowers, so she’s here with us.”

Perrin Paris is a family-owned leather goods company founded in France in 1893 on the tradition of glove making, which has since broken into the luxury goods landscape with modernist-looking handbag styles, some of which incorporate glove-like clasp details. Although the studio and showroom are in Paris, Michel and Sally Perrin travel back and forth to Los Angeles, where they have a midcentury home and a store in Beverly Hills.

Wearing a Comme des Garcons brown paper and plastic skirt, Perrin bopped from one long table to the other, chatting with friends, including Jouer cosmetics founder Christina Zilber, the Blonde and the Brunette's NJ Goldston, and fellow handbag designer Kendall Conrad.

Several representatives were on hand from Farfetch.com, which made news earlier this week with the announcement that it had made a deal to acquire and shut down Conde Nast’s Style.com site. A global e-commerce platform that makes inventory from stores and brands around the world shoppable with the click of a button, Farfetch.com will now be making Conde Nast content shoppable, starting with Vogue and GQ magazine in September.
