Casual chic can mean many things to many people, as does the concept of fall-winter dressing. For Yigal Azrouël, it means a flirty wardrobe embracing strong professional women who are not afraid to be themselves.
In this collection, Azrouël draws inspiration from iconic late-1960s style infused with gamine modernity. Like most foreign-born designers working in the U.S., Yigal Azrouël loves American sportswear–and this collection can be observed as a reverence of sorts, with looks that are as colorful as they are varied.

The wonderful combinations and juxtapositions of leather, silk, and wool in various colors make for a line-up that is fresh and fun within its hard-edged delivery. Once combined with some key fur pieces, including some pretty special full fur coats, the looks take on a whole new sophistication.
This gamine is all grown-up and knows what she likes and how she wants to be perceived. As austere as some of the pieces read, the line-up is more no-nonsense than severe, and the sportswear is more in charge of the collection’s direction than the statement outerwear.
