The Rich History of the Parisian Maison of Azzedine Alaïa
"My obsession is to make women beautiful. When you create with that in mind, things can't go out of fashion." Azzedine Alaïa
Luxury label Alaïa creates cutting edge, high quality feminine designs for the modern wearer.
For almost half a century since founding in 1982, the Parisian Maison of Azzedine Alaïa developed and solidified a reputation for original design and unique craftsmanship.
The creative mind behind the brand, Azzedine Alaïa was a renowned and skilled couturier and sculptor, loved and well-known for his appreciation for the female form.
Today, the tradition of Alaïa‘s perfection and passion for design lives on under the new direction of Pieter Mulier, in a way more modern and beautiful than ever before.
As always, the Maison pairs masterful silhouettes with quality, long-lasting textiles that have a timeless, yet modern appeal such as rich, buttery leathers and sturdy, but soft wearing cottons.
The current ready-to-wear collection is inclusive of Alaïa’s signature sculpted knitted dresses and gowns that are designed to look amazing on every kind of woman.
Also well known for their unique footwear offerings, statement bags and accessories, Alaïa shows off an affinity for laser-cutting technology throughout much of the collection.
With unconventional cuts and streamlined designs, the collections offer a modern edge to traditional French fashion design.
