This collection is about simplicity and purity, about less meaning more - about intimacy, about reducing to an essence, about finding a freedom and invention in that. It is a decision, a choice, not to minimise but to focus, to expand possibilities.
Everything you see is created with a single yarn.
For over a year we have been developing the fabrics of this collection. They are all based around a merino wool yarn, reinvented over and again with our textile and knitwear suppliers, who have worked with us for four decades. The entire collection is created using this yarn, their fabrics and expertise.
I always want Alaïa to be about more than the clothes. Because it is about more than the clothes. It’s about life, about being together.
