Iconic micro mini "little black dress" from Azzedine Alaia's 1990 Spring/Summer collection. In the 1980's when most of the fashion world was embracing sharp shouldered power dressing and baggy androgyny, Alaïa introduced the world to the 'body' and to his own skin tight dresses. Truly a showcase for the perfect human form, his bodycon look sat alongside the more masculine power suits of the decade. As Suzy Menkes said, "If there were any justice in this fashion world, Azzedine Alaïa would be a worldwide household name, instead of a cult hero. He defined the way an entire generation dresses and become the fashion revolution of the last decade." This stunning hourglass dress is a perfect example of his genius. It is made from a stretch spandex rayon in a rich jet-black color. The fabric has fantastic stretch that hugs and molds to your body to help create smooth lines. As with all Azzedine Alaia pieces, this dress is cut to hug and highlight your every curve. The halter bodice has a seductive scooped plunge which creates great cleavage. Such a flattering and timeless look.
