Azzedine Alaïa might have this world last November, but his indomitable spirit lives on to this day. The latest issue of 10 Magazine pays fitting tribute to the late master with a cover featuring none other than Aiden Curtiss. Sophia Neophitou, owner and editor-in-chief of 10, suggests his lasting influence is down to his refusal to compromise his vision. “The world he made was unique in an industry with interchangeable designers and brands,” Neophitou said. Daily life has no shortage of uncompromising figures, many of whom are just plain obstinate, but none of them possess the unmatched skill and artistry of Alaïa. This is what makes the Tunisian-born designer timeless, relevant for all ages. The significance of Aiden on this cover, paying tribute to this particular designer, will not be lost on any many admirers. Daughter of the late Katoucha Niane, Aiden is a living, breathing testament to the beautiful world Azzedine Alaïa created in his lifetime.
