Azzedine Alaia couture Autumn/Winter 2011

Mr Alaia’s return to couturefrom an eight year haitus has made this show the most anticipated of all the couture shows this season. A master of beauty who evokes tremendous devotion, there is no doubt that the collection was exceptionally beautiful. Famed as the king of cling, his silhouettes were a secondary story in this collection behind his exploration into texture. With the long ruffley gowns, Alaia manipulates the fabric in a way that no one else possibly could. “There’s everyone else. Then there’s Ala├»a.”
