Azzedine Alaia couture Autumn/Winter 2003

11 Jul
To put the current Alaia couture in context, I had a little look back to his last couture outing in Spring 2003. The difference between the two collections is really evident, this collection was much sexier, with a focus on the silhouette and sheer fabrics.

Azzedine Alaia couture Autumn/Winter 2011

10 Jul

Mr Alaia’s return to couturefrom an eight year haitus has made this show the most anticipated of all the couture shows this season. A master of beauty who evokes tremendous devotion, there is no doubt that the collection was exceptionally beautiful. Famed as the king of cling, his silhouettes were a secondary story in this collection behind his exploration into texture. With the long ruffley gowns, Alaia manipulates the fabric in a way that no one else possibly could.  “There’s everyone else. Then there’s Alaïa.”
