Consisting of mostly body-conscious mini dresses with graphic cut-outs in an array of electrifying neons, Yigal Azrouel's Cut 25 presentation was somehow able to reach a more relaxed momentum than the kind of party-girl sexy his chosen range of silhouettes might suggest.
And that's a good thing as we at FocusOnStyle have seen enough skin-tight body-con dressed open-toe bootied girls than we can bear. And thankfully by the looks of it, Azrouel has had enough too.
He was able to achieve this thanks to a clever play on relaxed sportif notes, graphic contrasting lines, acid pastels and alluring cool neutrals combined with unexpected techno-washed fabrics and multi-dimensional layering. His wood soled platform brogues and boots in collaboration with Frye also helped channel a modern ease that should sit well with the cool and young downtown crowd this range is obviously catering to. – Naveed Hussain
