NEW YORK Sept 28, 2011 /FW/Color blocking, straight silhouettes and nothing but neon, Spring 2012 was inspired by the 80’s surf culture. The newly launched line by Yigal Azrouel in Fall 2010, has already gained a great deal of attention and devoted following. This season New York was invited down town to see just what next season had in store. Arranged in formation, the presentation was full of energy with a minimal approach.

A diagonal approach to color blocking, pastels slashed through mini sleeveless neon dresses. Cropped pants with side seam details showed off the most colorful and eye-catching footwear yet! The jumper trend returns this season and Cut 25 does it in a small motif print. We loved the occasional appearance of airy forms such as high wasted belted long skirts and dresses. Collars and buttons popped on simple cap sleeve blouses. There were raincoats, visors and shades. Details were all about finding clever and subtle ways to contrast.

Models carried on as if they were robots from the future. It was hard to decide if we were in the middle of a candy lab from the future if a possible flash dance was about to break out! The collection was just filled with great pieces that we know will be popping up all over the magazine stands for months to come!
