The Fall 1990 collection had a wide range of ideas and themes including a nod to the beautiful calligraphy in the Kufi script that was embroidered onto the runway version of a knit bodysuit, worn by Naomi Campbell and a very few select other pieces. This romper is a take of that same print with a more stylized version of that calligraphy mixed with an abstract floral design. Azzedine was so private at the time that the actual runway show was not even formally announced, nor were invitations sent out. Despite that the mere word of mouth caused a line up of people to stand and wait for entry. Such was the power of Alaia. Very few pieces were produced and this is an exceptionally rare piece. The romper is cut low at the front with a low scoop neck and racer back halter back that leaves a wide expanse of skin showing. I have styled it in some of the photos with a simple black bustier (not included). It is made of his signature "bandage" knit so hugs and molds to the body. The shorts are finished with a edging of black ribbing. It's amazing. Excellent condition Unlined and closes with a hidden set side zipper. Note that if you over-open the zipper at the bottom it can get finicky about closing but is still fully functional and is original to the piece so I was hesitant to replace it.
