It is a little known fact that martial arts legend Bruce Lee was a covert Alaia fan. Although this may be hard to believe, considering that Lee had an untimely death in 1973 at the age of 32 and Azzedine Alaia didn't officially open his eponymous house until 1980, but how else do we explain this "Enter the Dragon" motif bodysuit? Perhaps, we are getting our facts wrong and it should be stated Mr. Alaia is a fan of Mr. Lee's? Whatever the case, this wool and rayon body suit features red and green woven dragons throughout the fabric and it wouldn't be unbelievable to picture someone wearing it AND kickin' some butt at the same time. However, we think this will most likely end up being worn with a short mini skirt (how about a Jean-Claude Jitrois stretch lambskin skirt -- we will post a few shortly!). We hail the return of the body suit!
