Many years ago, dresses were the mainstay of an Yigal Azrouël collection, before he moved into a strong sportswear niche. For fall, he returned to those chic, beautifully cut simple dresses. Lean, long-sleeved and calf-length, they came in ivory cable-knit, soft black leather, neutral printed silks and wine or evergreen silk faille trimmed with leather. There were sweaters too, most notably a long, chunky camel-and-black Fair Isle cardigan, worn over one of his printed dresses. A few leather looks, furs and some men’s wear-inspired jackets were fun, but those huge fur trapper hats and long gloves undercut Azrouël’s best efforts.
