Editor Obsessions: Vintage Alaïa Black Hooded Zipper Dress

-------

alaia-sizedEvery day, Style.com’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.

My Alaïa obsession is second only to my Comme des Garçons addiction, so when I received an e-mail today that Resurrection Vintage got in a black Alaïa zipper dress from 1986 (a favorite of Grace Jones’), my heart skipped a beat. To say this saucy little number, whose swirling zips are almost Charles Jamesian, is timeless would be a gross understatement. It’s going to look divine when paired with high-heeled booties or even my Prada combat boots. The only question remaining is, if I plan on donning it with the hood up, can I still wear a hat?

Editor Obsessions: Stella McCartney Suit

Blog_Collage_2Every day, Style.com’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.

On a whim, as is often the case when I shop, I purchased a great hunter-green double-breasted suit at Zara many months ago. And though I had been immediately drawn to the full menswear concept (and modest price tag), back at home I couldn’t quite wrap my head around how to wear the jacket and pants together without looking like Robin Hood, so it sat waiting patiently for its turn in the wardrobe rotation.

I have now worn the suit with holey band tees and sneakers; turtlenecks and heels; and button-downs and brogues, and with such high frequency that I regret the time it spent latent in my closet. I’m at the point in my life, however, where I appreciate luxurious fabric, detailed construction, and immaculate fit in a way that just never occurred to my whimsical youth, and thus find myself ready for the Stella McCartney upgrade. I have no doubt that this classic navy wool version will sub in quite nicely and with no Merry Men in sight.

Editor Obsessions: Wanda Nylon Sasha Parka

Try as I might, I just can’t buy basics while knowing that items like the Wanda Nylon Sasha parka exist in the world. I don’t own a black sweater or a white T-shirt, but this magical, iridescent piece seems like a necessity. I’m not sure what was applied to the fabric to make it look like a space alien-slash-oil spill, but I know that I can’t stop staring at it. Especially with fall on the horizon, what could keep me better protected from a hurricane than this space-age rain gear? Also, this might be the kind of item that’s so crazy it actually goes with everything, redefining the closet staple one outrageous rainbow jacket at a time.
