NYFW SS14: Yigal Azrouël Experiments with Minimalism

No contributor

This season marked a bit of a turn for Israeli-born designer Yigal Azrouël. His spring/summer 2014 collection was informed by a perspective that was more minimalist than ever before. Models with cropped hair slicked down to the skull wore very little makeup, and sported primarily black, white, and gray palettes. Muted color tones were paired with heavily architectural designs, and immaculate tailoring. In fact, the sharp tailoring of Azrouël’s suiting in particular gave rise to crisp, yet slouchy silhouettes which the designer kept simple with spartan details that worked to create an attractively androgynous aesthetic.

Much of the collection also centered around body-conscious dresses, many of which utilized experimental black-and-white abstract prints. The designer also tried his hand at cut out details and well-placed perforations. One slightly oversized, crew neck top sported a perforated body that exposed strategic bits of flesh, elevating a simple pullover into a piece full of the urbane sex-appeal definitive of the collection. Lastly, Azrouël flirted with color-blocking and crop-tops, flawlessly incorporating both popular trends into this latest, seasonal offering.
