Rare 1980s Chocolate Azzedine Alaia Knit Sweater

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About



Azzedine Alaia is a master of knits and this is a wonderful example of his earlier work from the 80s. This has a definite eighties vibe to it with its dolman sleeve cut and his signature (from this period of time) matching colored snaps running down the back. It is one of those great pieces that can be worn shorter with the top creating more of a blouse over, or pulled down to tunic length. The fitted hip gives it that body conscious feel to it that Alaia pieces do while the fuller top balanced that out. The perfect sweater to work into a modern wardrobe and a great collectors piece. Excellent condition
