Perhaps one of the most iconic of all the Alaia collections, and most certainly the one that is instantly recognizable, the Fall/Winter 1991-1992 collection was head to toe leopard that in its day was mind-boggling daring and almost subversive. He put the print not only on dresses and leggings but on the shoes, berets and bags. He took all the rules on wearing a leopard print, threw them out the window and then had a bevy of the hottest supermodels of the day, stomp them into oblivion in their 6 inch stilettos. Remarkably and perhaps not surprisingly, it still looks as fresh now as it did then. It's hard to argue genius and its good to see it worn so well in Paris. Bravo Giovanna!
