Couture Week - Mr Azzedine Alaia presents

After a long break he is back on the catwalk and boy can that man do a catwalk - i loved it - as i mentioned yesterday his clothes fit like no other.  Apparently he oversees all his own production with the same company in Italy he has worked with for 20 odd years.  A workaholic and perfectionist, should you buy one of his pieces you are reaping the reward of all his labours.

I think what i love about alaia is how it moulds to the body - holding yet not squashing so it is uber flattering plus it moves - the skirt yesterday being a point of fact.  I tend to wear my other alaia pieces in winter but you will definitely be seeing them then - they are amazing xx


The dress above is top banana for me






Waisted but never wasted - wow!!

  2. His collections are incredible and I can see why he doesn't need to advertise because the clothes speaks for itself. Thank you so much for your sweet comment (one of the sweetest ever!). I'm very flattered! xoxoxoxoo

  28. To have a gift like this! I'm envious. He is doing exactly what he's meant to be doing in his lifetime. Amazing. Love this post. Love every piece. If playing the "must choose" game...Give me the gray (what is that....ostrich feather?) Love it!
