It may have been years since his last haute couture collection, but Azzedine Alaïa’s Fall 2017 offering proved he’s still got it! As soon as supermodel Naomi Campbell (famously his “adopted daughter”) opened the show in a black and white shearling coat, one could get a sense something majestic was afoot. And it was! While there wasn’t any revolutionary design concepts introduced, there was expert tailoring, exciting new fabrications, and a celebration of the traditions of haute couture as founded by the likes of Balmain, Dior, and Balenciaga. It was crystal clear was that each and every look had a delicacy of touch that screamed luxury, even in the most minute of details. There’s definitely no designer quite like Azzedine Alaïa, and there will never be one again!
