After debuting in 1998, Isreal born-New York based designer Yigal Azrouël started showing at Fashion Week the following year. As he should; his designs are beautiful- classic, yet modern and innovative. His men’s Spring 2010 collection features loose threads, leather vests, and extraordinary jackets. Gray colours and stripe-schemes hit the runway; making it easy to go from beach to street.
For Women’s Spring 2010, the garments were similar to that of the men’s in terms of design shapes and hue, but more feminine. Where a jacket is considered baggy on a man, it drapes on a woman; trousers look like his and her’s, and some garments proved that less is more. Swimwear were cohesive with the entire collection and perhaps the influence for some of the tops (see below). The architectural structure of his boutique in the Meatpacking district is as intriguing as the garments. See the entire collection at Yigal Azrouël.com
