Documented F/W 1990 Azzedine Alaia Black Stretch Lace Dress

About

The twin of this dress was worn out by Iman to the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City, November 29, 1990 with her husband David Bowie. Various versions of pieces in this lace fabric were featured on the runway that season and showcased in editorials. It is instantly recognizable as his work and an iconic piece of the brands history. The dress is made of a black stretch lace that is layered over a deep nude stretch jersey that sculpts and shapes your form. The illusion is of course that you are not wearing anything underneath the lace and from a distance the dress can feel quite shocking. The lace knit that is used is very soft and the entire dress has a great amount of stretch. This is a size small in vintage Alaia and off the body it looks like a doll dress but will stretch to accommodate a real body. The stretch and cut are intentional and are made to hug and exaggerate your curves. The neckline is curved at the front and back and is accented by a wide black ribbed stretch fabric. This same ribbing anchors the hem and a far thinner band sits at each cuff. There is no defined waist seam - it simply glides past the bust and down and around the hips. It is utterly amazing on and sexy as hell. Excellent condition The body of the dress is lined with a dark bronze stretch jersey nylon. The sleeves are unlined. Slips over the head to wear. Tagged a vintage Alaia Small. The knit will stretch a bit and allow for a range of sizes - I have given the range from laying flat and stretching out to its comfortable max - you might be able to squeeze a touch more if needed Sleeves: approx 23" approx. Shoulders: no defined seam Bust: 13-18" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 10-14" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 13-18" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: approx 28-29" from neck to hem once on Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML (may fit a small med) Reference Photos: Iman and David Bowie at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City, November 29, 1990. / Naomi Campbell, Alaia F/W 1990. / Helena Christensen with Azzedine Alaia, Elle US, September 1990.
