For the concert hall's second act: Azzedine Alaïa
is taking the reigns for its rendition of Marriage of Figaro
. Alaïa, who is quite the man of mystery, will craft costumes for the full cast of soloists (half of which are men).
Not only was his decision to partake in such a public venture (pleasantly) surprising, so was the choice to arrange the attire for the gents — he's renowned for his womenswear, after all! But, don't fret — the designer hasn't abandoned his editor-approved approach altogether — we spy some familiar fabrics and silhouettes in the preliminary design drafts.
