“He was taking his own time, but I also discovered that his clothes withstand time. They are eternal. While I was discussing with Richemont, I bought a lot of vintage pieces and each time I realized they were immune to aging. At Alaïa, creation has its own pace. Such a rare thing in the landscape of fashion. Time as luxury.”
A great reflection from Pieter Mulier on Azzedine Alaïa’s appreciation of time, Vogue.
Mulier’s first runway show takes place on July 4th, the day before Paris Couture Week. In the run-up, he commissioned these images from Paolo Roversi, featuring Alaïa icons (such as the corset) reimagined using Japanese yarn with reflective properties.
