Surprisingly, this Azzedine Alaia dress is from one of his more recent collections despite its nod to some of his more classic work. He actually did a very similar dress to this in the 1990s with a slightly different woven pattern. It is made from ribbed and patterned knit in a stark white. This lies over a nude colored inner sheath so that it appears that you are wearing the knit over your bare skin. This inner lining is a stretch knit that hugs and molds to your body to help hold things in place and create a smooth line for the dress to fall over. As with all Azzedine Alaia pieces, this dress is cut to hug and highlight your every curve. The workmanship and the fabric is the best you can get and I love the saucy, flippy little skirt at the hem that finishes the dress with its feminine ruffle. A V neck at the front and no sleeves are the perfect balance to the long, supermodel length. This still has part of a Barney's tag attached and has never been worn. This is classic Alaia and a play on an earlier design he made famous in the nineties. Excellent condition.
