1990s Alaia Lace Panel Inset Dress

An amazing Alaia knit dress made of his signature stretch knit that is made to wrap and exaggerate your every curve. It is long and lean and skims the body. The neckline is a wide rounded scoop that shows off a girls cleavage to full, almost scandalous advantage. There is no defined waist - it glides past the bust and down and around the hips. There is an incredible lace panel that is set just above the knees at the front so you get a glimpse of the skin of your thighs. That same panel is made to curve and as it goes around the back it curves up and just under the butt. Each lean sleeve ends in a burst of ruffled lace. Its amazing and sexy as hell. Everything an Alaia is meant to be! Excellent condition.
