PARIS — “An Alaïa garment is like an Hermès handbag,” fashion curator Olivier Saillard mused as he led a tour of the Azzedine Alaïa retrospective that’s slated to open to the public on Saturday. “He makes clothes that endure.”
Saillard’s exhibition, showcasing about 80 dresses amidst the just-restored 19th-century splendor of the Galliera Palace, mixes designs from the Eighties through to 2013, telegraphing the evolutionary, on-my-own-terms approach of the Paris-based designer.
