Chez Monsieur Alaïa
We love Azzedine Alaïa!!! For his talent of course, and also because he is one of the last “Couturier” in the industry. Azzedine Alaïa is a “Monsieur” he creates Couture, not fashion…
In a world full of fast-fashion, high-junk-fashion, Azzedine Alaïa is here to remind us that it takes time to create beautiful and sustainable clothes.
Sunday, almost one month after the end of the craziness of fashion month, Azzedine Alaïa presented his fall winter 2016-2017 collection in his Parisian headquarters rue de Moussy.
Alaïa said he opted to present his collection much later than everybody else in Europe simply because his clothes can’t be made with a stopwatch. “I took the time necessary to create them,” he shrugged after the show, as guests rushed to congratulate him. Here was a powerful argument for slow fashion: a diverse, sleek and considered collection full of new shapes and embellishments from a designer stereotyped for curve and cling.
That’s another reason we love this elegant man so much, he always reinvents himself as a true “créateur“.
Here are our favorites looks from the show.
