INSPIRATION Azzedine Alaïa SS||1986... Balmain SS||2013

What amazing denim wear! I just came across the Azzedine Alaïa motorcycle jacket suit from his SS||1986 collection [left]... and it immediately reminded me of the eighties volumes and looks of the jeans outfits of Balmain's SS||2013 collection [right]. The fashion museum Palais Galliera in Paris has just dedicated a wonderful retrospective dedicated to the influential Paris-based couturier Alaia in which 70 iconic dresses were on display and were underscoring in a wonderful way the sculptural quality of the dresses.
