Yigal Azrouel Fall 2011

When & Where: Wednesday, February 16 at 9 a.m., the Studio, Lincoln Center
Runway Recap: Yigal Azrouel has built a strong following on his sexy little draped dresses, so at first I was a bit surprised by his fall collection, which leaned heavily on tailored, menswear-inspired pieces. But with each look that came out, I was won over by this major change in silhouette--Azrouel deftly mixed tailored jackets and coats in neutral colors with bright jade green, orange, cobalt blue, and hot pink. The combination was so unexpected, it was one of the most refreshing, modern ways of dressing that I saw all week.
Standout Look: Sorry for the bad picture--I ended up standing and did not have the best view--but this was one of my favorite examples of the overall look: a wool knit jacket, leather vest, mink infinity scarf, tuxedo shirt, and bright pink wool pants. Note to self: Go buy brightly colored pants ASAP.
Bonus Points: The attendance for 9 a.m. shows tend to be sparse, but every seat was taken--and the standing section was packed--at this show. It was also on Vanessa Hudgens' must-hit list, and indie darling Greta Gerwig was in the front row as well (and went virtually unnoticed by the paparazzi).
