About

An amazing and very very rare over sized Alaia trench coat in a textured glossed nylon fabric by Azzedine Alaia. This piece captures the hey day pf the over-sized, voluminous movement of the 1980s perfectly! It s a play on the classic men's trench but done in exaggerated proportions and using a glossy sexy nylon fabric. It closes with a double set of buttons at the front and then you can cinch in the waist. I have shown it on my size 4-6 mannequin with rolled sleeves so you can see how a smaller girl would wear it. It would look equally well in a girl from 2-4 sizes up from there too! It makes a statement and has ll the cut and couture level quality you expect to find in an Alaia! It is an amazing piece - not your typical Alaia and yet it represents him perfectly! Excellent condition
