Description
This documented 2008 Autumn/Winter collection skirt is by the renowned French couturier Azzedine Alaia shortly after he bought back his company from Prada in 2007. Made of black lambs leather, the skirt features a high waisted, corset style section, complete with boning effect and lace up back. The complex design features panels of vertical, tightly seamed sections alternating with sections of horizontal mini pleats. The lower skirt has unusual panier style shaping from around the hip down, creating exaggerated volume and movement when worn and emphasising the female form. Lined in polyester for comfort.

Alaia was a genius in leather design and this is one of the most intricate examples of leatherwear I've seen. It opened the collection presentation and can be viewed here: https://fondationazzedinealaia.org/en/pretaporter/hiver-2008/

The skirt is in as new and unworn condition with original tag attached. No stains or flaws to note.

Labelled a French 42, this runs very small and is better suited for up to a UK10 or US 6. We have measured this fully laced, as small as it will go, and also to the edge of the modesty panel separating the two sets of laces. It will go bigger than this but you would have to extend the modesty panel or wear black underneath to prevent skin showing through. Our model is a UK size 6-8 or US 2-4 and this fit her well too.
