SKIN DEEP: Zaha Hadid threw a party at her East London gallery on Thursday night to celebrate her collaboration with Swiss jewelry brand Caspita.
Hadid and Caspita designer Arlène Bonnant have collaborated on “Skein,” a limited edition ring and bracelet which come in variations of white, yellow, black and rose gold, some inlaid with pavé diamonds. Cellular structures found in nature inspired the mesh-like designs.
Also on display were pieces from Bonnant’s main collections, which range in price from $1,469 to $81,590 and are inspired by sacred ornaments, ancient symbols and chakras. The jewelry will be on display until Dec. 2 as a pop-up store within the Zaha Hadid Design Gallery. The “Skein” collection will then travel to Art Basel Miami to be showcased at the Colette Art Drive-Thru at Alchemist from Dec. 2 to 8.
Bianca Jagger, sporting a full-length leopard-print Roberto Cavalli dress and matching big cat cuffs on each wrist, was disappointed she would not be sharing a Thanksgiving meal.
“I wish I could be eating a turkey dinner right now,” she said, lamenting that by the time she gets to New York on Saturday “there’ll be no turkey left.” Jagger will deliver a keynote speech on ending violence against women on Monday at a reception hosted by Women and Girls Lead at Georgette Mosbacher’s residence in Manhattan.
Hadid said she was looking forward to a year-end break after a busy year. “I may go to Miami and chill out. I’ve been visiting for years and now have many very good friends there,” she said.
