Documented F/W 2001 Azzedine Alaia Couture Runway Dress

About

The twin of this dress walked the runway for the Fall/Winter 2001 presentation. The reference photo from that collection appears more of a blue but the runway version was black - it is just the lighting that makes it look that color. Versions of this piece have been a constant throughout Alaia's history and similar gowns featured prominently both in the Alaia exhibit at the Groninger Museum and accompanying book 'Alaia- Azzedine Alaia in the 21st Century,'. This long and sexy silhouette is perhaps one of the most iconic of all the Alaia designs and most certainly one that is instantly recognizable as being his work. It is a look that feels as fresh to wear now as it did when it was created. The dress is made from his signature stretch viscose jersey. This fabric molds to the body once on and is cut to hug every curve through the bodice and waist. Under that it flows out into a very long, supermodel length skirt that is made of yards and yards of fabric. The contrast of being fully covered and yet having your every curve show is signature part of his genius in covering the female form. The bodice of the dress is cut into a slightly higher neck and back and has low dipping sides. Raised seam work highlight the curves of the dress around the body and also create and emphasize the bust and waist. More seams curve around the backside and hug the body. Excellent condition Unlined and closes with a hidden set side zipper. There are also hook and eye hidden at the top of one shoulder. The gown is bias cut so does come up in length a touch once on. It is tagged a vintage Alaia size Large and Alaia does run 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 Bust: 15-19" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 13-15" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 16-20" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 70" from shoulder to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-LRG Item# DD2659 Send us a note to see these Reference Photos: (1) F/W 2001 Alaia Haute Couture Collection, Look 18. / (2) Alaia in his Paris Atelier with his long-time muse Naomi Campbell. / Shown: Book: Alaia, Azzedine Alaia in the 22st Century, BAI publishers, Groninger Museum.
