Recent Alaia Metallic Knit Lace Dress

This is just incredible! Made of a metallic knit this Alaia dress is one of the best I have seen, vintage or recent! The shoulders are pretty ruffle edged stars that suspend this wisp of a dress. Both the front and back dip low and sexy. The front bust has a ruffle trim all around its halter cups. From there the dress skims the body and hugs the hips until it explodes in a flare of ruffled knit lace and inset panels. Its is actually a full circle of fabric and when you move or dance (twirl perhaps) it has a salsa feel to it! It is lined to just above that fabulous lower skirt so you get the suggestion of skin though the lace. Amazing! Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Lined in a second layer of the same metallic knit to just the point where the skirt flares and then it is unlined. Slips over the head. Front buttons. Tagged a 36
