greta garbo's coat by azzedine alaïa, 1972 ph. ilvio gallo

One day, under cover of anonymity, Greta Garbo stepped into Azzedine Alaïa’s studio. Alaïa made trousers and men’s coats for her, and they were to have a lasting influence on his work.

The talk on Garbo and Alaïa analyses Garbo’s wardrobe, which was famously sold at auction in 2012, providing Alaïa with the opportunity to buy back some of the clothes he had created for her.
