Zaha Hadid, an Iraqi-born architect known as the “Queen of the Curve”, has worked with Pharrell Williams to launch a new collection of Adidas shoes.The collection, Supershell, will be released in black and white, and will feature a new “architectural” trademark: carved-in curves on the toes of the shoes.

Pharrell Williams notes that he chose to work with Hadid because he believes her to be “one of the most talented architects of our time and history”. Zaha Hadid is also recognized as one of the Arabian Business’s most powerful Arab women in 2015.
