2008 Azzedine Alaia Black & Nude Open Weave Knit Dress

This amazing and very sexy little Alaia knit dress is one of my favorites from his more recent collections. It is made from a loose weave, ribbed knit, over a nude colored inner sheath so that it appears that you are wearing the knit over your bare skin. This inner lining is deliberately cut shorter in length then the exterior skirt so that a glimpse of bare upper legs peeks through the knit of the skirt. A very sexy detail. As with all Azzedine Alaia pieces, this dress is cut to hug and highlight your every curve. The workmanship and the fabric is the best you can get and I love the saucy, flippy little skirt that finishes the dress with its feminine ruffle. Long skinny cut sleeves are the perfect finish. This is classic Alaia and a play on an earlier design he made famous in the nineties. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a nude lingerie weight jersey except for the sleeves. It closes at the back with a zipper. Tagged an Alaia large but fits small so please check measurements. The fabric does have stretch so will accommodate a variety of sizes. Note that it is a touch too large on my mannequin and will sit better through the upper body on the proper size girl
