DISASSEMBLED + REASSEMBLED
New York: Yigal Azrouël continues to hone in on just who the man presented on his runway truly is. For F/W 10, the aesthetic moved away from the casual, beachy side of the designer’s life in Costa Rica and transitioned into a more aggressive, urban personality, which was fitting since Azrouël told WWD that his inspiration was a man who was “disassembled and reassembled.” Sturdy materials like washed leather, raw denim, and boiled tweed balanced out the more sensuous Fair Isle long johns, pieced suede jacket and melange knits. The designer is always expert at subtly pushing the silhouette for menswear, and for the upcoming season it was a narrow leg contrasted with a slightly dropped crotch, naturally rounded shoulders and a voluminous funnel neck.
