There is something truly captivating about this dress that we can’t get enough of! The Archetypes Draped Stretch-Mesh Midi Dress by Alaïa is cut from a sheer fabric with plenty of stretch, artfully crafted into a minimal design. In a stunning black colour, it is complemented by a high neck, long sculpted sleeves and ruching through the V-shaped waist that together form a modern aesthetic. The curve-adhering fit makes sure to enhance your figure before ending at a maxi hem.

Why do we love this dress?

We love the bold look of this dress, making it perfect for those who like to show off their curves. Its mesh fabrication offers just the right amount of stretch so you can move with ease without compromising style. We also love the captivating black colour that goes well with just about anything.

Why should I buy this dress?

This Alaïa dress captures the modern aesthetic beautifully with its sheer design, V-shaped waist, high neck and long sleeves. Ruching at the front flatters your natural structure.

Where would I wear this dress?

Feel free to rock this dress to a romantic date night with ‘the one’ to set the mood for love. It is also perfect for cocktail parties and fun weekend evenings.

What shoes should I wear with this dress?

We styled the look with ALEXANDER WANG 85mm Kira Pvc High Heel Sandals. Just like the dress, this pair comes with transparent straps at the top to complement the overall look. Its open almond toes, crystal embellishments along the frames and elevating heels create a stunning style.

What bag should I wear with this dress?

We styled the look with a LANVIN Pencil Cat Nano Leather Top Handle Bag. Matching the bold theme of the Alaïa dress, it is adorned with a sculpted cat-shaped top handle in gold. The structured silhouette opens to a single main compartment with a slip pocket.

What we don't love about this dress?

This daring dress is made with a mesh top, which may not be ideal for those who value modesty.
