RIP Alaïa: shop the iconic couturier greatest hits

By  | 

Azzedine Alaïa, the tunisian-born iconic couturier of the modern era whose body-con designs defined Eighties fashion, died in Paris peacefully and without suffering at age 82. Alaïa was a legend in the industry was known for his structured, exacting tailoring and his refusal to bow to industry timetables and marketing pressures, preferring to work at his own pace. That’s down to his skill at cutting and his signature, supremely identifiable silhouettes, but even more so, perhaps, to his proud insistence that he go his own way in fashion. Alaïa held intimate shows in his Paris headquarters off-schedule and weeks after the fashion crowds left town. In rejecting the official calendar, he created an aura around his clothes that made them only more desirable.
