Paris Couture Fashion Week commenced on Sunday, July 2, 2017 in Paris, France and Fashion house Azzedine Alaia showcased its Autumn/Winter 2017 couture collection at the Paris Fashion Week.
AZZEDINE ALAIA made his couture comeback last night and tempted long-time friend and Super Model Naomi Campbell to his runway who opened and closed his show (the designer is widely credited at kickstarting the super’s career when she was 16-years old).
This was a collection that was unmistakably Alaïa – the fit and flare silhouettes, those pleated skirts spliced with leather, cropped jackets and knitted black gowns – but there were plenty of interesting textures and folksy references to make it all feel new; to thrill the eye, and – from a client’s perspective – fuel the spend. And it would be money well spent.
Anyone who has ever bought a vintage piece of Alaïa lately will know it’s immune to ever looking old. Few other brands remain as relevant today as they were three decades ago. The smart woman ordering from this line-up considers the purchase akin to an heirloom worth the investment. She will still be wearing it in 20, 30, or 40 years from now. (Or, if she won’t, her daughter certainly will).
