"Can't You See The Forest For The Sleeves?"

We recently came across this remarkable Azzedine Alaia wool dress in seasonally-chic forest green. The cut and fabrication are unmistakeably Alaia, but the two-layered bell sleeve channels a hippy-dippy vibe that's anything but. It's a great study in contrasts! (Note: the camera flash doesn't do justice to the color of this garment--in person, it's much more vibrant and not nearly as sheer as it looks on the mannequin!)
