Esteemed designer Yigal Azrouël combines contemporary glamour and everyday simplicity to create Y-Yigal, his tightly edited diffusion line for women. Y-Yigal reflects the same innovative and artisanal approach to design featured in Azrouël’s flagship line, but offers slightly edgier, more youthful silhouettes. Unfinished necklines, asymmetrical gathers, and rope trim add pop and panache to Y-Yigal’s solid-color one-shoulder dresses, ribbed jersey tunics and strapless mini-bubble dresses. Based in New York City, Azrouël and his designs have appeared in <i>Vogue</i> and <i>Harper's Bazaar</i>, among other publications.
Launched by the Israeli-born and New York-based designer, Yigal Azrouel, Y Yigal began as an affordable alternative to the designer’s high-priced ready-to-wear collection. Boasting the same self-taught draping that has garnered Azrouel critical and commercial success, the line’s cascading cuts and muted palette evoke a fluid feminine aesthetic that epitomizes effortlessly chic. Often styled into the editorial spreads of fashion titles Vogue, W and Harper’s Bazaar and seen on the racks of Bergdorf Goodman and Intermix, this ethereal collection, and favorite of Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson, can now be found at Gilt.
No matter your style, there is no passing by this treasure trove of designer ready-to-wear. For the purely demure set, rich suiting and extraordinary blouses can be found from both Valentino and Gianfranco Ferré. Fans of arty textures and sharp geometry will revel in the selections from Vivienne Tam, Yohji Yamamoto, Hanni Y and Issey Miyake. Smart, ever-so-preppy separates come from the likes of Brooks Brothers, Boy by Band of Outsiders and Malo. And, that's just the tip of the iceberg (yes, we have that brand, too!).
