Runway Review: We’ve always loved Yigal Azrouel for his connection to city girl chic. For fall 2010, he did not falter with streamlined architectural pieces in the type of colors that the urban-minded prefer.
The men’s collection struck a homier cord with more country-inspired silhouettes.
For past Yigal Azrouel coverage, look here.

In their words…
For Fall/Winter 2010, Yigal Azrouel presents a collection strong on tailoring. Silhouettes are lean and architectural, with undertones of reconstruction. Hybrids of different garments and fabrications creates new silhouettes and pseudo layers.
This is most relevant in the jackets with resin leather sleeves and the subtle patchwork details seen throughout. Fully matched suits offer toughness with removable shearling cuffs, leather inserts and metal accents.
The masculine/feminine play works its way into the men’s and women’s collections equally. High-neck details emphasize a certain restraint yet offer softness in their drape and asymmetry. Preferring a streamlined look, texture is created from the self-fabric with technical intricacy. Spontaneous bursts of color come in rouge, pansy and butterscotch, lightening the mood.
Azrouël designs several looks for Swarovski, integrating the crystal elements with unexpected garments like a rough, distressed leather jacket and raw drape knit.
