What is the very first thought that comes to your mind when you think of Alaia and his clothes? I have such a kaleidoscope! I marvel over the fact that he makes anything complicated seem so simple applying the art of knitting to dresses that look as if they were made in a more common, cut and sew so to speak, manner. I enjoy a little twist of visual delights that trick my eye with the pattern play. I love, love-love-love-love, the sensual pliable motion of everything, the flirty bounce, the softness, the caress... The endlessly beautiful form of restrained glamour.
I also wonder what would it be like not to have Azzedine and his vision.... The man who clearly inspired so many designers and countless high end and high street pieces - what are they all going to do one day?
Every time he unveils another collection, Alaia makes you realise how unique, one-of-a-kind and absolutely irreplaceable his work is. And it's pretty amazing to witness this fashion moment, even if only through the photos...
