The Fall Winter 2017 Collection captivates by honing the power of femininity and complementing form inspired by his signature architecture influence. This endless journey of inspiration for the designer is emphasized this season with the exploration of depth and texture, which is interpreted in sumptuous engineered fabrications and precise layering. Geometric reference and notes from nature are woven together throughout in a variety of feminine fabrics; apparent in abstract chevron fil coupe, branch printed velvet burnout, leaf embroidered guipure lace, and velvet animal prints.
"Azrouël’s blend-up started out of the gate with a camouflage parka lined in calfskin and hooded with an arc of shimmery silver fox; it looked good. From there, he progressed to a pajama-wrap suit, “burnout jersey” pieces, a shearling argyle overcoat, mink and leather jackets with runic shape detailing, and feather-light velvet pants printed in a leopard motif. See what we mean? The textures came fast, but not furious."
"Yigal Azrouël skipped a formal runway show, opting for intimate showroom appointments with editors instead, and it was all the better for getting personal with his latest collection, which begged to be touched and seen up close. It wasn't just the outerwear that felt particularly lush this season. Azrouel rounded out his lineup with languid, animal-print velvet trousers; slinky, striped pajama suiting; leopard-print mohair sweaters and a sexy black silk fil coupé slipdress covered in fringe. In addition to feeling good on the skin, the looks conveyed strength, modernity and sensuality with an edge."
