Pieter Mulier's first show was a celebration of Azzedine Alaïa's external and creative values.
It has been four years since the death of Azzedine Alaïa. Belgian designer Pieter Mulier obviously had large shoes to fill as he took on the role of Creative Director. Our expectations were certainly met as it was clear that Mulier isn't straying far from Azzedine's vision.
The collection was "a celebration of the innate and eternal values of Alaïa, of the power of the hand and instinctive creation." says Mulier. Although he has never taken a house on as his own Mulier has couriered the legacy with great respect and given it a slight twist. The runway saw body-con knits, classic shirting and corset belts, all with highly controlled volume and design.
"An homage to Alaïa — man, master, maison — and to femininity, which Azzedine Alaïa cherished and championed above all else," the show notes read. "A celebration of the innate and eternal values of Alaïa, of the power of the hand and instinctive creation."
We are so excited to see what Mulier has to bring to Alaïa's future collections.
