Fall 1990 Azzedine Alaia Jacket & Shorts Suit

This is an amazing vintage Azzedine Alaia "city" suit that has that high end, minimalist feel of the nineties combined with the chicness of the working girl and sharp tailoring that only Alaia can do. The shoulders are strong and cut that way to emphasize the nipped in waist of the jacket. Cirling the upper bodice of the jacket is an additional panel of fabric giving it a nod to the classic trench coat in feel. It is cut with that classic hourglass shape and pockets curve around each hip and are anchored with a matte black button that matches the ones that close the front. The shorts have a classic flat pleat suit trouser, much like a man's suit trouser. The fabric the suit is made of is also a play on men's suiting, with a ribbed texture worked through it. When this was purchased my client was told it was worn by none other then the iconic supermodel Beverly Johnson. In the video attached you see a version in pink near the end of the clip. Excellent condition.

The shorts are unlined and the jacket is fully lined in a black satin. The jacket closes with buttons at the front and the shorts close with a zipper and buttons at the waist. Each sleeve of the jacket has three decorative buttons.
