It's no secret that Azzedine Alaia loves Vionnet and has a pretty killer collection of her impeccable bias cut gowns from the 1920s and 1930s in his personal museum.  When this wool coat came in I was seduced by the two-tone wool (matte and shiny) as well as unusual back cape detail.  But honey, that ain't nothin'!  When I opened the coat I realized it was as if Alaia took the footprint of an iconic Vionnet gown and built the coat around it.  Check out Eri's demonstration showcasing the inside of the dress and notice how the internal construction is separate from the outside of the actual cape attachment.  


Alaia black wool coat. c. 1980's. Marked size 8, modern size 4-6. SOLD
