Summary: Celebrating the strength and power of seductive sensuality, Yigal Azrouël creates silhouettes that shape the body and play on tailoring. The suiting is accomplished through "formal wear made pedestrian." Rich fabrications like the ostrich feathers and duchesse satin give depth, dimension and effortless movement to each piece.

The splashes of color keep the menswear from being too harsh. The bright cobalt and hunter green help the tailored suiting and oversized knits to keep things in the realm of "artistic femininity.. The confluence of menswear and womenswear show a strong sense of personality and confidence of the collection as a whole.
