1980s Triple Strap Alaia Dress

Iconic mini dress by Azzedine 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 is the classic, extremely sexy, bandage dress with insets of a contrasting ribbed knit. The insets are set in a way that makes the dress look like a corset or garter - it highlights every curve. The bust is cut very low and I love the three strap detailing that goes over each shoulder. The back is low and the hem is high.

Unlined and slips on to wear. Tagged a vintage Alaia XS. The bust sits low but you could easily adjust the straps for a perfect fit

Waist: 11" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Hips: 15" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
