West Coast Leisure With Yigal Azrouël

By Robyn Roberts

September 8, 2014

That easy-breezy California lifestyle, enviable to all of us from time to time, was alive and well on a New York runway over the weekend. For spring/summer 2015, Yigal Azrouël was immensely inspired by a bygone era of coastal living-meets-luxe sportswear. The blue Pacific beckons for polo, highballs, and leisurely strolls through the gardens of a great lawn; a time before tennis skirts fell far above the knee, and sporting events were the chicest mixers in town.

Architectural forms and utilitarian prestige are primary leaders in Azrouël’s latest collection, with twists of airy silhouettes and elegant loungewear. The designer incorporates a generous amount of modern design aesthetics to a number of pieces with 3D palm leaf appliques and lavish palm embroidery. Utilitarian aspects lend a more rebellious wink with refined military bombers, collared shirting, and one-pieces with scalloped finishes. Airy silk rules the collection in pale pinks and crisp blues, with splashes of merlot and army green. Azrouël produces a solid collection each season with beautiful finishes, offering extremely chic yet very attainable pieces for the ultimate easy-breezy girl on either coast.
