Yigal Azrouël in Black & White

A clean, minimalist aesthetic continues to permeate the spring 2014 collections, with Israeli-American designer Yigal Azrouël leading the pack. This morning’s show was broken up into three themes, starting with polished suiting ideal for work and sexy bodycon dresses rife with cutouts. Next came the prints: black-and-white branches and geometric jacquard—both intensely graphic and street-style-ready. The third theme blends lambskin leather and patchwork mesh in an array of feminine dresses and tailored jackets—an edgy-meets-classic style that the Yigal girl craves.

The Cool Mystique of Yigal Azrouël

There’s no question about it: Israeli-American designer Yigal Azrouël knows his customer. She loves stark shades, masculine influences, sculptural shapes and tailoring as sharp as a butcher’s blade. Azrouël summed up this season’s collection with a quote of his own, printed in the show literature: “The subject is a mysterious poisonous flower—so delicate and filled with beauty that you can’t resist, but if pursued, it may kill you.” Sounds like our kind of girl.

Yigal Azrouël Showroom Snapshots

Fashion Week is definitely the best time to cruise designers’ Instagram feeds—they’re constantly posting random shots in the days and hours leading up to the show. We grabbed some pics of Yigal Azrouël‘s model casting and fittings in his Garment District showroom. The runway show is tomorrow, so you can imagine how busy he’s been.

Yigal Azrouël Has You Covered

There’s hardly anything more appropriate for spring than a sturdy hood — especially in Nordstrom’s hometown of Seattle. Yigal Azrouël embraced the idea of inclement weather this season, creating a collection of beautifully draped dresses and separates, waffle knits and detachable hoods. Gotta love the idea of making any outfit into a hooded ensemble.

The Modern Nomad

 
As is often the case in spring, designers look to exotic cultures for inspiration. This seems even more relevant this season as the idea of escape comes into play.

African tribal references provide a rich source for bold print and embellishments. What’s new here—once again—is the clean, modern approach.

 


 

The spice route also shows up on this journey as a reference point for color and crafted details. The approach is just as simple with a single component of ornamentation making the statement.

 

 

More subtle are the easy, draped or wrapped pieces, which reference authentic indigo dyes and ombre effects.

 

 

Another play on the important maxi dress completes the different ideas that all live within this modern nomad trend. For each section, it’s an eclectic mix of references, but the end result is not.

It’s so beautifully modern and perfect for spring and leading into summer.
