Opéra De Paris x Alaïa

Pieter Mulier conceived the costumes for the first ballet of Bobbi Jene Smith and Or Schraiber at the Paris Opera, employing the skills and savoir-faire of the Alaïa’s atelier.

Both trained at the Batsheva Dance Company under Ohad Naharin, Bobbi Jene Smith and Or Schraiber present Pit, their first creation for the Paris Opera Ballet.

For this occasion, Pieter Mulier was approached by the two choreographers to design and create the costumes.

He conceived supple armours made with some of the Alaïa’s iconic materials and inspired by the free movements of the dancers. They match the curves of the bodies, their shapes, and their silhouettes. They highlight the movements of the dancers. The bodies are enhanced, exalted, celebrated.

This collaboration echoes Alaïa’s unique history — a house where fashion and creation always meet art and beauty.
