Azzedine Alaia Women

For the late Tunisian designer Azzedine Alaïa, fashion was a calling. Born to a family of farmers in 1935, he studied sculpture while working as a dressmaker to support himself. These formative experiences perhaps played a part in establishing the signature Alaïa style we know today. And as for his dogged work ethic – you can see that in every finely stitched seam and precise silhouette.

We're big fans, and you will be too when you explore our hand-picked selection. Let's start with those icons of sartorial finesse – Azzedine Alaïa dresses. Expect to find styles that follow the contours of your body in intricate detail. Wide shoulders are a mainstay, as are sharp cut-outs that show just a little skin as they flutter past your legs.

We should also mention Azzedine Alaïa leggings. After all, the designer is credited with introducing the now-ubiquitous garment into our present-day fashion vocabulary. You'll spot his famed black leggings here, rendered in shiny leather or embellished with an enticing lace effect. As for styling, consider any item from Azzedine Alaïa to be a bold fashion statement in the making. A flash of gold jewellery or a few deft accessories is all you need.
