With Frieze New York just around the corner, interior designer and art collector Maria Brito has designed a series of limited edition clutches that feature the work of Erik Parker, Kenny Scharf, and Carlos Rolon/DZINE. SoHo boutique Kirna Zabete will sell the $895 bags in store and online beginning May 8 (not coincidentally the same day Frieze opens to the public). Each bag will be sold in an edition of 20. Brito says she is working with artists to develop more artsy clutches to come.
“I conceived this capsule thinking about the idea of true wearable art and curated the artists and their works putting them together in this collection as if it were a gallery show or a coherent collection in a home,” Brito said in a release. “They all have to do with each other and complement each others’ work.”
