Vogue Arabia pays tribute to the king of cling Azzedine Alaïa

“The obsession of Azzedine Alaïa’s life was “to make women beautiful.” Is the beauty of an Alaïa dress in the eye of the beholder?” wonders Vogue Arabia in the intro to the fashion special of it’s latest March 2018 issue. Vogue Arabia pays tribute to the late master of fashion Alaïa in a stunning way.

Top model Cindy Bruna is photographed by Julian Torres for the magazine which reminds us the beauty, the structure, the elements of the magic which the fashion designer brought to this world. “On these pages, our hero escapes to the whitewashed desert towns and arid valleys of the island of Djerba. It is but 500km from the master’s final resting place in Sidi Bou Said. Untethered, she leaps across dome rooftops whose stones are battered by salty Mediterranean waters. She searches through ruins. Behind her, the white mosque guards souls. That joyous, mischievous spirit of Azzedine Alaïa is not far. It is within her. From that moment when she embraces beauty until eternity and beyond, from that sunburnt soil, she will release the liberated life inside her. A new beginning starts now” notes Vogue Arabia.

His legacy will live on whilst two exhibitions are dedicated to the late king of cling. “Je suis couturier” at his Parisian atelier and the upcoming exhibition dedicated to his oeuvre, at the Design Museum in London which opens in May are the must-see events on Azzedine Alaïa, the eternal couturier.
