Yigal Azrouel is moving into accessories with an unexpected collaborator — Swiss cobbler Walter Steiger.
Azrouël, who launched his own line in 1998, has long been a fan of Steiger, and sought him out in April while he was preparing his spring 2009 collection. “I love the movie ‘Blowup,’” says Azrouël, referring to the 1966 Italian film for which Steiger designed the shoes. “I didn’t want to work with a young or trendy designer. I wanted someone with great technique, who makes interesting shapes.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
