Perrin Paris and Stylist B. Akerlund Collaborate on a Line of Clutches
She’s styled some of the biggest names in Hollywood (Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, and Beyonce, to name a few) and now, costume designer and stylist-to-the-stars B. Akerlund has collaborated with French accessory brand Perrin Paris to launch a capsule collection, intended to transform the look of the fashion house’s iconic Capital Clutch. The Haute Couture Capitale Clutch Collection features 12 one-of-a-kind bags with distinctive detailing like hologram stingray, plexiglass, and graffiti art, which were commissioned by various designers and artists, with contributions from Swarovski, Plek One, Erevos Aether, jeweler Vram, Cameron Helm and Jerry Constantine/Constantine FX. “B brought the fantasy, we kept the chic in check,” Sally and Chloe Perrin told InStyle.com of the purses.“They are pieces of art that transcend generations.”
“The idea was to create different textures and use unconventional materials to help the clutches come alive,” said Akerlund of the designs, which she says were inspired by “taking a couture concept and twisting the normal with an open invite to my world.” Four styles are currently available on The Editorialist starting today, with the rest available for pre-order (priced from $1,800-$6,000) on perrinparis.com and in Perrin Paris boutiques in New York, L.A., and Paris.
