A new edition of the only major monograph published on Alaïa, which has been out of print for over a decade. This book is a celebration of Alaïa’s world, a collection of images of his haute couture creations worn by his muses and photographed by icons of twentieth century fashion. Alaïa features more than 200 photographs by Paolo Roversi, Annie Leibovitz, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Patrick Demarchelier, Arthur Elgort, Ellen von Unwerth, Gilles Bensimon, and numerous other photographers. With a new introduction by Carla Sozzani and Christoph von Weyhe from the Azzedine Alaïa Foundation this book is a testament to a designer whose tremendous skill, unique vision, and independent spirit colored the fabric of the fashion industry forever.
