Alaïa Special Edition Green
For over 35 years, Prosper Assouline and Azzedine AlaÏa were close friends. As a tribute to their friendship, Prosper Assouline decided to republish Assouline’s 1992 “Collector’s Book” on Alaïa’s Summer 1992 show that lays bare the work of a creative artist. Never before had a haute couture designer given such an in-depth view of the secret alchemy that goes into a fashion show. Azzedine Alaïa was not one to do things the way everyone else had done, so it was fitting that he would be the first to produce such a work.
This book also redresses what could be described as an injustice of the fashion world by giving a durable form to the eminently ephemeral event that is a couture show. It is a permanent record of the creative chaos that is a feature of every fashion collection, an ordered reflection of the fragile and wonderful craziness in which a creative artist lives and works.
A faithful mirror, this “Collector’s Book” reflects the intense and magnificent work of artist Azzedine Alaïa.
