1980s Azzedine Alaia Knit Dress or Coat

Azzedine Alaia is a master of knits and this is a wonderful example of his earlier work. This has a definite eighties vibe to it, in a great kind of way and is [erfect for layering over other pieces or as a stand alone. It still has that body conscious feel to it that Alaia pieces do but in a subtler way. I love the diagonal striping across the back and how the waist is nipped in by manipulation of the knit rather then seaming. It snaps to close so can be worn as open or closed as you prefer. It will work as a dress, a layering piece or a light coat. Excellent condition
