Yigal Azrouël: Innocently Impure for Fall

By Eliza Jordan

February 18, 2016

It is not an easy task to pick up where Yigal Azrouël left off. For his last collection, the designer delivered sheer and elegant pieces fit for a fun summer of silk and chiffon, but this season, we are seeing a much darker story. Each of Azrouël’s collections seem to stand alone, despairing details from previous creations, and follow a whole new intuition.

To further indulge in contrasting elements, such as lightness and darkness, and impurity and innocence, the fall/winter 2016 collection exudes creativity from the core of the house’s foundation: draping, cutouts, and unique silhouettes. Rich hues grace structured jacquards, while color-blocked patchwork minks are seen mixed in with luxe knits and silk twill. We also got a glimpse of architectural pleating, unique cutout detailing, and many textures and compositions in both graphic black and white.

Our favorite look—a structured V-neck, quarter-length sleeve blazer and matching trousers in dark navy, maroon, and burnt orange—was also seen in the form of an outerwear jacket.

And the highlighting whim of the collection: a black rose, providing the hint that even in darkness, there is still much beauty.
