Yigal Azrouël continued to play with fabrics and skins for his fall collection, often mixing them in one piece. Ponyskin sleeves could be zipped off a wool coat, and leather accents showed up on sleeves and pant legs. These combinations were rendered with mixed results. Azrouël, who cited “the energy of phantasm, danger and chilling allure” in his show notes, amped up his construction with shoulder treatments and sculpted silhouettes on several body-conscious dresses. These added a strong attitude to the looks, which he softened with several chunky knits that seemed perfect for the next blizzard.
