Body Beautiful

Black and skin-tight. That's how we like our Alaia here at Decades. The amazing dress in this post is a fine example of what Azzedine Alaia does best. The material is a viscose, wool, and nylon blend which is a surprisingly soft yet resilient material. The dress zips all the way down the back and the fabric panels are sewn together to produce a design motif that can be seen in many Alaia pieces. We have found the same pattern in past dresses and even in a pair of shoes that recently came out. If you would like to see the pattern we are talking about click here to see an older post where it is more visible. Wear this dress with a pair of black patent leather 6" heels, preferably ones with a red sole.
