Inspired by travel and New York architecture, Yigal Azrouël’s 2015 resort collection is defined by its innovative layering, original fabrics, patterns, and geometric shapes.
Not designed for one particular destination, the collection showcases a plethora of different pieces that can be layered and mixed together. With one dress in two parts, a casual look is created that can be worn anywhere. If you remove that snap-away top, underneath reveals a mesh top that would be perfect as a beach cover-up.
A fairly monochromatic collection, Azrouël reaches aesthetic divergence with unique patterns that he created himself. Known for manufacturing all his clothes (with the exception of furs) in New York’s Garment District, the designer takes it to the next level with the patterns that he introduces in this collection. In one jumpsuit, he combines two different depictions of a magnified fabric. One reveals the intricacies of the interwoven threads, echoing the architecture motif, as it looks like a mirror image of a skyscraper. The other shows large, ripped fabric holes in a sepia tone.
Geometric lines are featured throughout the collection, with a dynamic, handkerchief cut, seen on various dresses and exaggerated pant legs. The choice accessory of the collection, the scarf, featured Azrouël’s own French bulldog, Jagger. Seen previously in his Pre-fall Collection, Jagger is pictured in the center of one scarf. In true pop-art fashion, another depicts Jagger in cartoon masks, drawn by the designer.
