Alaia is renowned for his ability to design and craft clothes that fit like a second skin, his signature style being dark tight dresses, skirts, jackets that emphasized feminine curves.
While he has not really had a fashion show in the past decade, Alaia is now part of the Prada group and he keeps creating for both his pret-a-porter line and for certain private clients.
His Paris boutique is at 7 rue Moussy with his hotel next door. Don’t miss the shoe and accessory boutique that can only be reached through the main store.
If price is a concern you can find last year’s stock in rue de la Verrerie at significant discounts – and given the timelessness of his designs they are still great buys!
