Virtually all of Azzedine Alaïa’s many fans in fashions were taller than the 5’2” legendary couturier, who died at 82 in 2017. Apart from Naomi Campbell, who still calls Alaïa “papa,” the most notable was the late German photographer Peter Lindbergh, who towered over the Tunisian designer at six feet. Bonded by their admiration of women and love of black-and-white, the pair collaborated throughout the 1980s and ‘90s, with Lindbergh tagging along to the beaches of Le Touquet and Alaïa’s Parisian atelier. (Greta Garbo, one of many A-list clients, used to show up to her fittings at the latter incognito.) “Azzedine and I are hand in glove,” Lindbergh says in Azzedine Alaïa.
