About

In the 1980's when most of the fashion world was embracing sharp shouldered power dressing and baggy androgyny, Alaïa introduced the world to the 'body' and to his own skin tight silhouette. As Suzy Menkes said, "If there were any justice in this fashion world, Azzedine Alaïa would be a worldwide household name, instead of a cult hero. He defined the way an entire generation dresses and become the fashion revolution of the last decade." This very rare black genuine-leather jacket, dating back to 1991, is a wonderful example of his genius. The jacket is a seductive cropped design with plunge wide portrait-collar. The dolman-sleeves are so chic and current! I love the super high-waisted cut which looks great with any bodycon dress or skinny jean. As the great Alaia once stated, "When I see beautiful clothes, I want to keep them, preserve them; clothes, like architecture and art, reflect an era."
