THE AL­LURE: Azze­dine Alaïa is a rene­gade, pre­fer­ring pri­vate ap­point­ments over sea­sonal run­way shows, and cre­at­ing his own fash­ion di­a­logue away from the styles du jour. For over 40 years, the Tu­nisian-born fash­ion de­signer’s qui­etly provoca­tive de­signs gar­nered adu­la­tions from his re­fined clien­tele. BE IN­SPIRED: Work­ing with a close-knit group of friends and ad­vi­sors, Alaïa in­tro­duces his first fragrance that is so sig­na­turely Alaïa— from the golden weave cap to the bot­tle de­sign in­spired by his iconic 1981 Houpette dress. The com­po­si­tion, cre­ated by per­fumer Marie Sala­m­agne, has aquatic notes that in­ter­min­gle with pink pep­per, freesia, and peony, and sen­su­ous un­der­tones of musk. DID YOU KNOW? Alaïa dreamed of the scent “like an ar­chae­ol­o­gist dreams of sculp­tures from an­tiq­uity ... sculp­tures of per­fect bod­ies, matched only by the women of to­day— an ideal and time­less beauty.”
