collection images: yigal azrouël, pre-fall
by Jeremy Danté
restrained & stylish appears the yigal azrouël collection for the 2011 pre-fall season. a plalette of oatmeal tones & warm accents is seen for the pre-season, in the form of fur caps & gloves. while i had expected something much more spectacular, i found myself wanting to see more. i have come to expect progressive design & here what we’ve seen, though acceptable, is much more classic than fashion forward. quirky prints & creative layering were elements presented throughout the collection, but still a feeling of emptiness was felt. i’ll wait with bated breath to see what is produced for the fall season during new york fashion week. overall, the collection grade fare for a solid attempt but less fruitful pre-fall collection. i expected more.
