Iraqi architect, Pharrell Williams collaborate in new Adidas collection
The pair of trainers, which will be available in both black and white, features Hadid’s signature parametric curves
Iraqi architect Zaha hadid teamed up with International star Pharrell Williams to design a pair of trainers as part of the singer’s collection for Adidas.
The pair of trainers, which will be available in both black and white, features Hadid’s signature parametric curves showcased in the rubber cap on its toe.
Speaking about the collaboration, Williams said: “I’m a huge fan of Zaha’s, I’ve always been. She’s one of the most talented architects of our time and history in my opinion.
“The kinds of shapes and kinds of structures that she transcribes from her mind’s imagination - I think that Zaha’s designs are just like her buildings, they augment reality forever. And I feel like with the Supershell, she created, while using the dimensions of the shoe, cast shadows that weren’t necessarily there,” he added.
The Iraqi-born British architect is one of five collaborators from the art world that Williams invited to work on the collection.
Hadid has previously won international architecture prizes including the Stirling Prize - which is the UK’s most prestigious architecture prize.
