Azzedine Alaia S/S 09

Who doesn't love Alaia? He's like no other fashion designer. He apparently has no website, no catwalk shows, and doesn't advertise. This is simply a case of the clothes speaking for themselves. You have to admire such a cost-efficient yet effective business plan. Cut out the frill and focus on the quality I say. If the recession doesn't end any time soon, do you think we'll experience a return to investment dressing?

I took the liberty of pairing a couple of looks from the spring 2009 collection with one of my favourite Escher pieces. Just because. Enjoy!

I absolutely think we are experiencing a return to investment dressing already, at least among my friends and myself. I'm trying to completely cut out the purchase of poorly-made shoes especially.

Wonderful combination of the surreal painting and the stunning looks, they go so well together!
