Summary: The Yigal Azrouël Spring 2012 collection embraces the combination of masculinity and femininity, conjuring the image of a strong and confident woman. This ideal is further stressed and reflected in the minimal and structured compositions of each ensemble. Though this collection could be seen as “menswear as womenswear”, the collection in a whole is softer and pops more than that.Silhouettes are elongated and linear with the use of luxurious fabrics.

This season also juxtaposes rich textures coupled with voluminous forms that creates a multi-dimensional layering effect. This is itself reveals the intricate structure of each design. The sleekness of each piece is reflected in both a simplistic yet architectural way.
