YIGAL AZROUEL – NEW YORK – SPRING / SUMMER 2013 FASHION SHOW
Yigal Azrouel has become known for his equal interest in both reshaping classic menswear and refocusing the future of womenswear, and his 2013 line continued this brave step forward with geometrically unique cuts and dark tones that granted the line a unique seriousness. For the women, Azrouel played with loose-fitting and floor-length gowns that tied the geometric theme together well. And the line’s use of cream, olive and black hoods highlighted the line’s emphasis on shape. Calmer tones and unique shapes help coalesce Azrouel’s complicated thesis, which gained inspiration from the architecture of nature—”rocks, streams, rivers”—and what Azrouel cited as “the unchanging elements.” Famed fashion bloggers Bryanboy and Rumi Neely were spotted front row, as well as a host of anonymous Teen Vogue-ers. The show’s soundtrack was punctuated by Grimes and Chairlift, etherial female vocals that matched the free-flowing and progressively feminine designs the line was showcasing.
