1990s Amazing Sleeved Alaia Knit Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


A really unusual Alaia in a size that is actually wearable by most mortal girls. A deep oxblood red knit, the body of the dress is typical Alaia in how it follows every curve. A high collar and a cleverly seamed waist-line that gives the illusion of his iconic corset belt create a dramatic front, while the back has a row of colored metal stud snaps that go halfway down the back. The sleeves are incredible - wide and dramatic they can be worn fully cuffed as shown or down for a full effect. And incredibly, under each of those wide sleeves is another full sleeve that is skinny and fitted! And it may not be apparent at full glance but there is a subtle difference between the rubbing of the bodice and skirt. Typical genius extra attention that an Azzedine Alaia dress displays! Mint condition.
