Joe McKenna Reveals Rare Azzedine Alaïa Documentary


Never know what to say about Monsieur Alaïa that doesn’t sound like a total cliche – yes, he is a genius, yes, he changed the course of fashion and yes, to say we are superfans is an understatement (removing our Editrix-in-Chief Sophia’s Alaïa heels would probably cause effects similar to severing one of her organs – a proper one, not like a kidney or appendix). But there is a man behind all of that – a man we’ve been lucky enough to encounter as his French maison is our home away from home in Paris – a man who also is the subject of this intimate documentary made by super stylist and long-time collaborator Joe McKenna in his very first film. We’ll leave the rest to Sophia, because well, her words are far better than ours. She said via Instagram this AM: “my absolute fashion idol Azzedine Alaïa, the man with magic hands, the creator that takes my breath away, whose example should be followed by all, the oracle, has shown a little glimpse of his world to us through the brilliant Joe McKenna… every moment to be savoured and be watched and re-watched. So go – find a place that’s quiet and absorb every moment just loved it, really inspiring in every way!” Watch it by clicking the link below…
