Film documented and museum held Fall/Winter 1984/1985 waist belt by Azzedine Alaïa. It's always a pleasure to be able to document a new arrival. I am absolutely delighted to show you the twin version of this belt worn by none other than Grace Jones in the James Bond movie "A View To A Kill" in 1985. Her ensemble was a result of a collaboration between Grace's friend, Azzedine Alaïa and costume designer Emma Porteous. Grace was perhaps one of Alaïa's most devoted clients. In addition to it a twin of this belt is part of the permanent collection of The Met Museum. Crafted in France from smooth black leather, this rare Azzedine Alaïa belt is designed with a wide strap with tonal black stitching that elegantly wraps around the waist. Fold over hidden peg-in-hole closure, backed in butter soft leather and stamped on the back "AZZEDINE ALAÏA PARIS, Made in France". Marked a size 75.
