EXOTIC SKINS AND LEATHER HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PART OF MONSIEUR ALAÏA’S WORK.

He brings to skins a style and technique that nobody dared to do before. He grabs them like a piece of cotton or gabardine and works them in their natural direction or against it.

AMONG THOSE EXOTIC SKINS, MONSIEUR ALAÏA HAS ALWAYS FAVOURED WORKING WITH PYTHON.

For this animation, he invited the artist Aurore De La Morinerie to create a special series of monotypes revisiting the iconic python dresses from the Spring/Summer 2009 collection, made of laser cut bands of python skin and existing both in black and white.
