Yigal Azrouël Delivers Edge and Elegance

By Eliza Jordan

September 16, 2015

Yigal Azrouël’s spring/summer 2016 show at New York Fashion Week was a delicate juxtaposition of sheer elegance and modern edge. Floral motifs flaunted femininity, dimensional layers played with contrasts, and shadows from cutouts, cape sleeves, and tiered overlays showed effortless sensuality. There was sheer chiffon paired with silk charmeuse, and there were plenty of notable structured looks too. Rocker chic took a sweet turn and showed off razorbacks, zipped cap sleeves, and square necklines—and there were plenty of tough hints in scalloped trim and jabot necklines to carry out Azrouël’s architecturally-inspired form.

As the show’s music transitioned from soft piano to deliberate drums, materials made way from see-through to sturdy. Fluid silk pieces with abstract floral prints were swapped for drop-waist, cross-zip, and structured blazers and jackets. One of our favorite looks from the 26 seen was a dusty grey-blue silk and chiffon shift dress with a black front embroidered framed overlay.

Once again, Azrouël proves that he indeed still is the expert at fabric draping and feminism, and now, the edgy elegance that we are seeking for 2016.
