Just in at RARE vintage: Azzedine Alaia!

'Shapely' and 'sculpted' are words often attributed to the work of the Tunisian designer, Azzedine Alaia.  Mr. Alaia's every line, every stitch comes from the curve of body, the line of the back, the definition of the waist.  There are no empty seams in his work.  Every line counts.

Just in at RARE vintage is this wonderful denim dress by Azzedine Alaia with detail stitching, defining the body, in a distinct turmeric color.

I love this dress and it is a testament to the craftsmanship of Mr. Alaia that he can take a somewhat stiff material like denim and cut it so precisely that it seems to "flow over a woman's body".

love, kisses and vintage, Juliana

PS Here is a sweet short film on Alaia commissioned by AnOther magazine. Animation by the artist Sarah Beeby. Enjoy!
