Yigal Azrouel - New York: Spring 2010
(NEW YORK) "Experiments in geometry" was the concept behind Yigal Azrouel's spring collection. A well-known master of downtown chic, the designer used drastic jet and nude color blocking to create a dramatic and harsh contrast. Jagged black bandeau tops brought an edge to billowy white tanks and angular linen blazer oozed a coolness from each of its wide-set strips. The ash bomber jacket with exaggerated lapels was decidedly Yigal, and a crowd favorite with its distressed lambskin and studded shoulders. But it wasn't all rough and serious. Yigal employed a muted Aztec print to break up the mood. Explained the designer, "I tried to create a print that was more classic and that worked with the collection and the graphic lines."
