The profile of this long coat with its ample skirt is designed by a flap on the back. With his structured shoulders, slim waist and fluid volumes, Azzedine Alaïa probably refers to the silhouettes of the actresses he dressed from Greta Garbo to Arletty, who will always be a part of his imagination.

Alongside her fuzzy work in jersey or draped chiffon, this coat highlights the unique tailoring talent developed by Alaïa throughout her career.
