I wanted to feature one of my favorite designers Azzedine Alaia, because everything he creates is more than a pair of shoes or an accessory... it's more like a piece of art. Alaia specializes in high-end leather goods and is top-of-the line! The price-point of his pieces typically start in the thousands so it's not that simple to own a pair especially because they aren't sold everywhere. In fact, Alaia is super selective to the boutiques they sell to not to mention the deliveries are somewhat unknown. When a store receives their shipment is when they receive it so imagine the Alaia waiting list! However, if you happen to own anything from his collection one thing for sure, it'll last a lifetime! Looks like this might be my fashion investment piece for 2010 Flaunt Followers!
