Copy of AZZEDINE ALAIA Fall 1991 Vintage Camel Bodycon Top & Leggings Ensemble Size S // Sold

This incredibly rare and iconic Azzedine Alaïa set from Fall 1991 consists of a top and matching leggings and is made of a warm camel knit with plush trim cuffs and intricate cutout details that accentuate the sexy bodycon silhouette of this outfit even more. Both pieces slip on to wear and are made of 63% rayon, 33% polyamide and 4% elasthane. The fabric is of a thick and ultra-soft quality, resembling plush velvet or teddy fabric, with a beautiful texture and feel. The set is made in Italy and highly collectible, especially in this timeless, delicious colour.

CONDITION
Overall excellent. The only flaw is visibly overstretched fabric on the front and especially the back of the crotch area of the pants on one side right next to the seam (please see the detail pictures), but interestingly this is not too obvious on a real body, as opposed to on the mannequin. Minimal flattening to the fabric in the underarm area.

SIZE
Both pieces are tagged size "S" and fit true to size - this equates to a D 36, F 38, I 42, US 6, UK 10
