10.26.09 | Category: Fashion Licks

Do fashion designers surf? Yigal Azrouel does. We talk to the self-taught designer, who developed his own unique style and opened his flagship boutique in the meatpacking district in New York in 2003. Today Azrouel’s pieces are sought after by fashionistas and celebrities alike. Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Liv Tyler, Charlize Theron and Eva Mendes are just a few of his stylish clients.

He showed us:

  • a Yigal Azrouel dress that wraps across a woman’s body like seaweed
  • a Yigal Azrouel scarf as changeable and versatile as ocean breeze
  • a Yigal Azrouel jacket with the grain and color of soft sand
  • a Yigal Azrouel motorcycle Jacket in white lambskin

      I hope you got to keep that jacket! It was AMAZING! It’s incredible how, even with the softness of the lambskin leather, he was able to get it to hold its structure.

      I also like his source of inspiration but maybe that’s because I’m from Hawaii. The sea is certainly a broad enough topic to offer many clothing lines worth of ideas but is still filled with so many specific qualities that can be translated into fashion. nice post :)

      I love his colors, concepts, and clothing! The beauty of his style draws my attention and his execution is mesmerizing. The seaweed dress is gorgeous and truly evocative of the deep mystery of the sea.

      Fun piece to watch. Thanks for introducing me to this interesting designer. I hope you got to keep all the clothes…they look like they were made for you. Very cool.
