Where to buy Alaïa pieces to add to your wardrobe this summer

where-to-buy-alaïa

Knowing where to buy Alaïa is advantageous when you're in the market for a gown for your next event, a bag to sail through the summertime with, or a classic crisp white shirt that's sure to never leave your wardrobe ever again until it's passed down to your kin.

The brand is synonymous with its uncompromising approach to making women feel beautiful, confident and powerful. The Alaïa brand was founded by Tunisian-born Azzedine Alaïa who empowered women of the 1980s with his bodycon dresses and approach to sculpture and form. The late couturier and sculptor relaunched the eponymous label in 2007. He introduced footwear and leather goods to the coveted brand. The laser-cut heels and waist-cinching belts become brand signatures.

Today the brand is helmed by Pieter Mulier who shares his predecessor's passion for quality and creation. It's not the easiest of tasks to find Alaïa these days, we know. As the it girls de jour from Alexa Demie to Margot Robbie are donning Alaïa threads, it's safe to say finding pieces from the brand are only going to get more challenging.

Luckily we've done the scrolling for you and have been able to source the sites that will offer up exactly what you're looking for. Whether it be a vintage gem from Vestiaire Collective or the heart-shaped Le Coeur leather shoulder bag selling fast from Net-A-Porter.
