Iconic black and white striped knit skirt from Azzedine Alaia's 1992 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 skirt is a perfect example of his genius. The couture stretch knit is designed to flatter every curve. I adore the scalloped waistbanD, patterned hemline and back slit. Talk about a seductive fit! I promise this will become a favorite in your closet.
