Adoring Alaïa

Puma Giveaway— Cause Working Out Can Look Good!


Alaïa.  He’s back at the couture shows after 8 years.  It has been 8 years of building anticipation.  The man— who understands impeccable tailoring, design restraint and clear focus, while still creating something that is fresh and enticing.  The quiet artist with a near cult like following.  Okay, perhaps not cult like— after all there is nothing creepy about this collection.

The Azzedine Alaïa Fall 2011 Couture Collection lived up to the hype.  The pieces were sculptural and sumptuous.  And each piece spoke volumes without screaming.  It is no wonder that the applause at the end went on and on and on….

In fact, I am going to let it speak for itself:


What do you think?  And speaking of- how do you feel about the Couture Collections?

  1. OMG everything is impeccable.

  2. I am in love with the fourth dress from the top, it’s gorgeous. I like how his pieces, although structural, look very wearable as well. He’s got a little bit of a funky 80’s vibe going on, I’m so feeling this collection

  3. I don’t think I would wear those (maybe the third one!!) but I really find them beautiful!!

  4. I wish I were younger again – only to be able to wear lovely clothes like this! Now, I still wear lovely clothes – only more appropriate to my age and lifestyle :)

  5. I love numbers 2, 3 and 4. Number 1 scares me a little – I can’t say quite why. And I like the last one but can’t see myself wearing it without a boob job and growing at least 7 inches (height wise). I like all the shoes too.
    I find couture interesting – rather like artwork.

  6. I’m mesmerized by the shoes…

  7. #3 blows my mind that something can look that good

  8. I love the couture shows because they’re all about fantasy, but this collection just doesn’t go far enough for me. I mean, the clothes are beautiful, but it just looks like really well done RTW. The last two dresses are the only ones that hint at couture.

  9. Look #3…O-M-G

  10. yaay! makes me think of clueless :)

  11. That 4th dress SCREAMS MY NAME. Ughhhhh I am going to have nightmares about it tonight. I mean, I could not dream up a precious little LBD more perfectly suited for my style. damn. I need to go rob a bank. Pray I don’t get caught. Orange is not my color.

  12. the second one from the bottom made me go OMG SHES A PEN!! xD

  13. So structural and impeccable tailoring. I haven’t seen much of the couture collections, have to catch on. :)

  14. Chic, edgy and feminine all at the same time. I really like this collections

  15. Unusual but very wearable. Love.
