Following French-Tunisian designer Azzedine Alaïa’s death in 2017, the Alaïa ship has sailed on as best as it could to keep the legendary name alive. Now, Pieter Mulier is signing on as captain. Announced today, February 5, Alaïa has officially named Mulier as its newest designer. Mulier cut his teeth as an intern for Raf Simons before transitioning to Simons’ right-hand man working alongside him at Jil Sander, Christian Dior, and Calvin Klein where he developed a knack for sleek, feminine silhouettes.”Pieter’s appointment marks the opening of an important new chapter for our Maison as we jointly seek to carry the foundational values and distinctive style of Alaïa into the future,” Myriam Serrano, chief executive officer, says in a statement. “Pieter stands out for his remarkable technical talent and devotion to the craft, his sharp eye for construction, and a sense of timeless beauty that is deeply ingrained in the creative approach of our Maison.”

Mulier will begin his tenure at Alaïa immediately with plans to present his debut Maison Alaïa collection for the spring-summer 2022 season. “It is an absolute dream to join this prestigious Maison, its beautiful ateliers, and its talented team,” Pieter adds. “Azzedine Alaïa’s powerful vision has served as an inspiration, as he always sought to give the necessary time to innovative and enduring creation. It is with a tremendous sense of admiration and responsibility that I will seek to carry forward his legacy of celebrating femininity and to jointly shape the future of this legendary Maison.”
