Azzedine Alaïapassed away at the age of 82, and leaves behind an unparalleled and unique legacy in fashion. The Tunisian-born designer was perhaps known best for his daring and dramatic body countering dresses that fit as if they were a second skin and his exquisite tailoring. He emerged as a defining designer of the ’80s only to buck the traditional fashion system in the ’90s, forgoing regular shows and moving at his own pace. Even still he remained an influential artist in the industry, and continued to inspire a new generation of designers including the likes Alber Elbaz and Nicolas Ghesquiere. Here, we look back at some of his greatest hits in the pages of W. His creations adorned the likes of Carine Roitfeld, Kate Moss, Tilda Swinton, and even Oprah Winfrey in our pages. Though, his creations were most frequently seen on his close friend Naomi Campbell. She wore his chantilly lace dress on one of her most iconic covers for our June, 2007 issue.
