Yigal Azrouel Resort 2017: Yigal Azrouel is Inspired by NorthÂ Africa inÂ Resort ’17 Collection.
Yigal Azrouel’s latest Resort 2017 collection capsulated inspiration drawn from North Africa. The North African influences were seen throughout the collection in various ways, whether through silhouette, color or print. Caftans of varying lengths and richly patterned textiles spoke to the inspirations of the designer.
The resort collection combined elements of ethnic, African designs along with sleek, tailored designs contrastingly. The designer featured luxe, printed pajama separates. A floral printed fitted leather jacket was styled with eased, cropped pants with a grommet lace up closing the waist. Ankle skimming dresses were boldly printed and African inspired in their design, while also sporting a sleek, sheer, vertical panel resembling black lace. A leather top followed suit in the collection with sleeves and side panels designed in the same lace detailing featured previously.
Floral appliquÃ© detailing was placed atop the necklines and hemlines of fitted black dresses, along with lace. Another matching set was constructed in total lace. Diversifying this lace with the traditional recognizable lace was the intricacy and particularity of this lace as inspired by African symbols and shapes rather than dainty florals. Wide leg billowing pants were paired back to unconstructed blazers.
A floral printed caftan with lace up detailing and moderate side slits dressed a model, while a similar but varied one cinched at the waist and hung off the shoulder. The caftan also appeared as a top. Other dress silhouettes including a thigh grazing lace dress in a violet hued cobalt blue. The stand out piece from the collection featured a leather bomber jacket with printed fabric sleeves paired back to a slim, tailored white pant. Another leather jacket scribbled “Jagger” in script across the back with an outline of a French bulldog in ode to the designer’s dog. Consecutively throughout the collection was the repetition of details such as grommets and perforations.
The collection showcased a myriad of transitional styles each returning to the North African influence, declared by Yigal Azrouel.
