pharrell invites zaha hadid to collaborate on adidas original supershell artwork collection
with the success of adidas’ collaboration with pharrell williams, the german shoemaker has asked iraqi-british architect zaha hadid to create her own white ’supershell’ design. using the legendary adidas ‘superstar’ as the canvas, the men’s shoe showcases a one-of-a-kind work of art of pharrell’s favorite artists. ‘I’m huge fan of zaha hadid,’ says pharrell. ‘I’ve always been and is one of the most talent architects of our time and history in my opinion with the kinds shapes and the kinds of structures that she transcribes from her minds imagination. I think that zaha’s designs are just like her buildings, they augment reality forever.’ the partnership is part of ‘artwork’ collection that also features todd james and mr. supershell, and will be up for a very limited release, in different parts of the world.

the result of the collaboration is a pair of shoes that showcases hadid’s signature look by adding curvaceous lines into the traditional toe-shell. the all-white design is complemented by yellow accents and shadows. this is not the first time the architect works with shoewear as we have seen her join forces with brands like lacoste, melissa and united nude.
