azzedine alaia

1980s Alaia Olive Leather Bustle Back Coat or Dress

This was pulled from the archives exclusively for Nini Nguyen's Guest editorship!

An amazing Azzedine Alaia leather coat that you could potentially wear as a dress too! It is cut to fit and hug every curve. The leather is a deep olive-brown color that is very striking and a perfect alternative to black. The shoulders are rounded and the waist nips in to create a wasp waist shape. The skirt part is cut wide and at the back it has extra leather worked in so that you get a almost bustle like fullness . Signature Alaia and very sexy! Excellent condition.
