Yigal Azrouël - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) Yigal Azrouël looked to the dark side for inspiration for his Fall 2009 collection. “I liked the idea of dark and romantic this season,” he said. “It’s more rock and roll than other collections. I used a lot of leather.” Leather was certainly a key element, making appearances in the forms of super-skinny pants, a stunning leather paillete dress, and a truly covetable pinstudded leather jacket. Not everything had such a hard edge, though; Azrouël’s signature draping appeared in several dresses and casual tanks. “Sometimes I don’t really know what I’m doing,” Azrouël said, “but it comes out when I start draping. I’m a draping designer.”
