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.
