Azzedine Alaia

 Sofia Coppola's wedding dress was a lavender dream; she looked radiant.
The bride and groom looked classy and elegant.
This gives me an excuse to look back at Azzedine Alaia's A/W Couture Collection.
(incase you'd forgotten)

Tailored jackets and suits made of patent snakeskin are so sharp and smart, Green and Burgundy are going to be big this A/W.



Perfect for A/W,  Mongolian lamb complemented by soft velvet and sculpted knits;
Get your 'faux' fur out.





The choice of colours and textures add to the luxe edgy look.
His range of silhouttes varied with shapes evolving from streamlined to bell shapes to fishtail gowns..

 Beautiful sleeveless gown with scalloped neckline and scalloped arm holes.


The 'sexy' version.


Eighties glamour neckline.
(Reminds me of Dynasty)

 

I adore the floor length edgy fishtail dresses with trianglular fonds!
I love the attention to detail with the change in necklines that create such a different look for each dress.
He may be hitting the headlines for his forward talking and 'bitchy comments,'
however his collection justifies that he does know his stuff.
