A new edition of the only major monograph published on Alaia, which has been out of print for over a decade. Alaia was renowned for highly intricate form fitting couture with a sculptural quality. More than a decade in the making, this book is a celebration of Alaia's world, a collection of images of his haute couture creations worn by his muses and photographed by icons of twentieth century fashion. With archival photographs chronicling Alaia's early years in Tunisia; excerpts from literary texts and other sources of inspiration for the couturier; and contributions from his closest friends, the reader is invited to discover an intimate world where creation was allowed to flourish. Alaia 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 master photographers. With a new introduction by Carla Sozzani and Christoph von Weyhe from the Association Alaia this book is a testament to a designer whose tremendous skill, unique vision, and independent spirit colored the fabric of the fashion industry forever.
