Art of Perfection - 'In the hands of Azzedine Alaïa, a dress is so much more than stitched fabric. It’s an exaltation of the female form. A technical masterpiece. A unique vision. Over lunch in Paris, fashion’s ultimate independent finally comes to terms with his singular legacy.' Karmin Saldi photographs Finnish beauty Suvi Koponen wearing head-to-toe Alaïa pieces styled together by Joe McKenna for the spring issue of NY Times Style Magazine. Hair by Yannick d'Is, Makeup by Christelle Cocquet, Set Design by Max Bellhouse.
