Maria Brito launches Art Clutches collection with Kenny Scharf, Erik Parker and Dzine

Interior designer and art collector Maria Brito, famous for working with Gwyneth Paltrow or Sean Combs, recently released a series of limited edition clutches that feature the work of artists Kenny Scharf, Erik Parker and Carlos Rolón/Dzine. The capsule collection has as a goal to form a bond between the artists and the collectors and was made in close collaboration with the chosen artists. The beautifully printed clutches are made out of acrylic, employing the same technology used by the MoMA, the Whitney and the Met for some of the works that they exhibit in their museum shows, with the artists’ signatures etched on the back. The collection is available at SoHo boutique Kirna Zabete, in-store and online, with each clutch limited to an edition of 20 and priced at $895.

“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,” explained Brito. “They all have to do with each other and complement each others’ work.” The artsy clutches debuted during this year’s Frieze NY and obtained such a positive response that Maria Brito is already working with more artists for a future collection.
