Belle Curve

We have loved and collected Azzedine Alaia since the late 1980s when Jacqueline Schnabel had a Julian Schnabel designed boutique on Mercer Street in Manhattan. It is hard to resist a dress that makes you feel ultra sexy. Whenever we have chosen to wear Alaia we are usually the only one. And for people who love vintage that is one of its appeals: having something unique that not everyone else has.

There is a timelessness to all of his designs. We have recently seen Marc Jacobs reviving the Tati bag for his Marc by marc jacobs line and John Galliano referencing his short dresses. But we love the original and this pale grey slinky knit dress with tap shorts built-in is as good as it gets. It curves around the body, looks good from every angle, is beautifully cut and is very French.

1980s pale grey Azzedine Alaia knit dress. Size 4/6.
