Incredible Alaia Asymmetrical Body-con Dress with a Hood and Zippers

$ 2,900.00


This is an edgy and beautiful dress by Parisian designer Alaïa. Made in a casual black jersey knit, its intricate and elegant seams are architecture and flattering. The body-conscious silhouette is enhanced by the sweeping curves of the dress's seams, which form arches over the hips to emphasize the body's hourglass shape, and by the gold zipper which swoops over the left shoulder and across the back torso, ending finally on the front right hip. This zipper draws the eye across and down the figure, highlighting the waist and carrying the gaze to the seamed hips and the knee-length hem. The large hood and long sleeves are comforting and practical elements which also add to the dress's urban warrior or post-apocalypse chic, giving it both elegance and edge. This is a comfortable, flattering, and versatile dress, and it will give you the confidence and presence to face any day.
