About new arrivals, sales & special offers
Dating to the S/S 1992 collection, this Azzedine Alaia mini dress is made from stretch knit with scalloped edges & is emblazoned with a heart and a scrolling ribbon bearing the motif ‘Mon couer est à papa’ - a French phrase which literally translates as ‘my heart belongs to Daddy’. This was modelled on the runway by Carla Bruni in the mini length and Naomi Campbell in the maxi length - a particularly poignant choice as Campbell's bond with the Tunisian designer, who took her under his wing when she was a fledgling model at 16, was so strong that she referred to him as Papa. This dress & print was such an instantly iconic signifier for Alaia that it was rereleased in 2019 after the designer’s death & instantly sold out worldwide. Made to couture standards, this is truly a rare & museum worthy piece and will only appreciate in value.
