Back in Paris, I got the chance to visit the Alaïa exhibit before its opening. Having the entire Palais Galliéra to myself was so fabulous – and even more surrounded by Alaïa’s timeless designs. It was a fascinating and restrained exhibit – the transparent plastic mannequins completely disappearing behind the dresses, giving them a beautiful and almost disturbing presence.

A few steps away, it continued at the Musée d’Art Moderne where dresses that were specially created for the exhibit were placed in front of Matisse frescos. So incredibly moving…

Click on the arrows to see all of the photos, but definitely go see the exhibit!
