The creative director said “For me, it’s about how to explain the codes [Alaïa invented] to a new generation,” “They don’t like the word ‘sexual’ here, but I do. Because to me, this is the only house in the world which is sexual without being vulgar. It’s actually about pure beauty, and working on the body, which I have never seen anywhere else.”
