Preview: Yigal Azrouël Spring 2012
Lindsey Gathright, W‘s Market Editor, checks in with Yigal Azrouël as he puts the finishing touches on his Spring 2012 collection.
“My woman is a very strong Helmut Newton woman. She is modern, knows what she wants, how to wear clothes and doesn’t have to try too hard,” says Azrouël of his ideal client.
For spring, Azrouël has created a balance of tailoring and structure featuring tough fabrics (think: wool gabardine) offset by light and seductive chiffon.
“One of my favorite pieces is [a] must-have shirt dress in the right shade of rich red.”
This collection focuses on polished, effortless luxury. All of the elements are consistent in proportion and length and can be easily paired together.
