Bright bursts of color—magenta, tangerine, and cobalt blue—imbued Yigal Azrouël
's menswear-inspired Fall 2011 collection with a cheery, playful spirit, one surely welcome in the sea of black that is New York fashion in winter.
Azrouël, who built his name on expertly-draped cocktail dresses, headed in a surprisingly tailored direction with his newest pieces. Rich, luxe sweaters were draped over white button-downs with starched collars, while strong, boxy coats hung free over cardigans cinched with thin belts.
There was glitz, too, in the form of sequined cocktail dresses and gowns. Young starlets like Kristen Stewart will look fabulous in the shorter spangled frocks. Others will enjoy more 70s luxe looks like the pale peach longsleeve dress shown with a multi-textured sparkly tie.Browse more pictures of Yigal Azrouel's Fall 2011 collection:
