Lele Sadoughi joins forces with The Metropolitan Museum of Art to release a 33-piece collection just in time for summer.

Marking Lele Sadoughi’s first collaboration in the arts, the offering comprises hair accessories, jewelry, handbags and more. Each design was inspired by renowned works of art in the Museum interpreted through Founder & Chief Creative Officer, Lisa ‘Lele’ Sadoughi’s unique lens.

The introductory range, called the Masterpiece Collection (Volume 1), includes references to works by Edgar Degas, Gustav Klimt, Claude Monet, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Lele Sadoughi’s iconic headbands are the focal point of the line, featuring designs inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s Wheat Field with Cypresses, Edgar Degas’ The Dance Class and Claude Monet’s Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies, among others.

Working alongside The Metropolitan Museum of Art for our inaugural Met x Lele Sadoughi collaboration has truly been an honor. I believe The Met is the most iconic and beloved New York art institution. I have been fortunate to roam the hallways for decades, and most recently, have taken my kids to visit my favorite pieces of art. I always find myself wandering into the galleries that house the nineteenth century European paintings. For our first Met x Lele Sadoughi collaboration, I have selected six treasured artists represented in The Met: Cezanne, Degas, Kilmt, Monet, Renoir, and Van Gogh.

I feel honored to have had the opportunity to interpret masterpieces into wearable, three-dimensional art. From hand-enameled, sculptural water lily earrings, to hand-sewn silk floral belts and bags, and screenprinted headbands with still life images, famed ballerinas, and skylines with hand-sewn pearl cloud formations and clusters of crystals, I believe we have created our most collectible collection to date.” said Lele Sadoughi.

Collaborations are most successful when they are supported by a personal connection to art in the Museum, and The Met x Lele Sadoughi epitomizes that. Lele’s passion for The Met is evident in every aspect of the project, and her carefully chosen embellishments call attention to the details that make the original works of art so beloved. Her attention-grabbing designs are sure to spark conversation about 5,000 years of art and we look forward to exploring works across The Met’s 19 curatorial departments for future collections.” said Josh Romm, Head of Global Licensing and Partnerships at The Met.

The Met x Lele Sadoughi collaboration, which ranges in price from $55 to $200 and includes select styles for kids, will be available to shop on lelesadoughi.com and in Lele Sadoughi stores. Hair accessories will also be available for purchase at The Met Store and online at store.metmuseum.org.
