azzedine alaia

1980s Alaia Black & White Tank Dress

Iconic mini tank dress from the great Alaia. His forte is the ability to cut garments that cling like a second skin and yet somehow manage to nip and tuck and add curves in all the right places. This knit piece embodies everything that is great about Alaia and this particular pattern is one of the rarest and highest sought after for collectors. A deep charcoal base has rows of white bars woven through to create a subtle 3D ribbed texture. The black and white combination is classic and it is a dress that will never go out of style. All labels are present. This piece (or it's twin) was photoed on Linda Evanglista and was pictured with Azzedine himself!
