One of my favorite collections this season has been Yigal Azrouel. It was just so simple, so wearable, and really badass. Set on the cobblestone runway at Highline Stages (how no one fell, I have not a clue), every girl seemed to come out in perfect, simple dresses. The precise, almost severe cuts, and the solid color scheme made the girls seem very modern but also very 80's power bitch. The oversized fur trapper hats and the leather opera gloves just added to the luxury and gave a little volume to the minimalist looks.
I met Yigal in LA at a charity event with Rochelle Gores Fredston where he showed his Spring '12 collection on the roof of the London Hotel in West Hollywood. Aside from being just devastatingly handsome, he's super down to Earth and like he describes it, "just loves making women look beautiful." Amen to that. I have had about enough of these fashion forward Marc Jacobs dresses that are so on trend, but honestly, really ugly. It's time to get gorgeous again girls.
