1990s Rare Custom Alaia Python Jacket
An amazing, rare, rare, rare Azzedine Alaia customs piece from the Fall-Winter 1990 collection! There are probably one or two of these in the entire world and certainly this is the only one I have seen in this color combination. This look marries tough with sexy and has that classic Alaia cropped chicness. The skins are supple and perfect. The sleeves are cut like a classic motorcycle jacket and then end with buttoned cuffs. Each cuff has those same special made star topped metal signature buttons. I love the huge collar - so dramatic! Cropped at the waist. Still insanely modern and instantly recognizable as an Alaia piece. A modern equivilant would be well over $20-25,000 or more if you culd even get your hands on it! This is as good as it gets and it is in excellent condition. The absolute holy grail for the serious Alaia collector. Museum quality
