Fall 2010: Yigal Azrouel(Men)

Have him try it. He doesn’t try it, he doesn’t know, but when they wear it once, trust me, they want to wear it again. It’s very effortless

says Yigal Azrouel in reference to getting straight men like himself to wear leather pants. After some more scenarios he ends with the last resort:

Tell him no sex. No sex until he wears the leather pants

Yigal has decided that it’s now time to play with materials for men. Women wear leather pants… not regularly but you know it’s not crazy talk when they wear them, so why not men?? And why just stop at pants?? Why not have leather socks that we can tuck our pants into so that we can show our socks off?? What’s the problem with that?? Well for Yigal, paired with an oversized collar, there’s no problem at all.

Fall 2010: Yigal Azrouel(Women)

Looking at the pictures for this show again made me rethink.. how am I going to cover all this goodness in four pictures?? Thankfully Yigal did me a favor and put the menswear and womenswear into the same show and so now I can just pull them apart although some of the clothes drew off inspiration from the other. Maybe this was his idea all along but showing menswear and womenswear together showed just how much they correspond and flow. It didn’t really seem to be two separate shows but one. Anyways, I’m splitting them up so I can post more pictures of the items that are SURE to become staples!

Yigal is known for his the since of ease he brings to his work, and that’s not lost in these designs. This year he even manages to bring in an architectural aspect. Most cropped, structured, architectural jackets are very rigid, very straight looking. This one above has a softness, a suppleness to it that is only increased by the pants. The military influence has been all over the shows this year so, you might want to go ahead and invest in a structured jacket like this.
Embellishment, embellishment, embellishment, it’s back again! And we’re not talking your old pair of jeans, and some beads from the local Hobby Lobby(although I did that for my sister when I was younger, but you got to make the money you have work for you right?). We’re talking tasteful embellishments done on a neutral solid color, preferably black, that uses cut outs that at times make the naked flesh seem like an embellishment. That’s how you do it Yigal Azrouel style. Oh, and the structure on that shoulder… it’s missed by many people but sometimes beauty is in the details.
With the advent of the jegging, and the trend of just wearing a leggings with a shirt, females should definitely look in to the oversized sweater. I love them, always have and always will, and paired with these leather pants instead of leggings, makes it that much otter to me. A deconstructed collar, knitwear with a lot of substance… Rachel Zoe say it for me… I Die!
