An ultra seductive and instantly recognizable Azzedine Alaia black cutwork patterned metallic accented stretch knit floor-length gown dating back to his 2012 fall-winter collection. Alaïa introduced the world to the 'body' with his ultra flattering tight dresses. As Suzy Menkes said, "If there were any justice in this fashion world, Azzedine Alaïa would be a worldwide household name, instead of a cult hero. He defined the way an entire generation dresses and become the fashion revolution of the last decade." This alluring hourglass bodycon gown is a perfect example of his genius. The mid-weight knit has a beautiful metallic silver deco-circles pattern and carefully placed sheer striped cutwork, alluding to nudity. The stretch knit molds to your body to help create smooth lines. As with all Azzedine Alaia pieces, this dress is cut to hug and highlight your every curve. I especially love the v-neck bodice and criss-cross low backside. The mermaid fishtail style hem finishes the gown off with a perfect femme fatale vibe.
