My standpoint on Yigal’s fall collections shift around the positive field from year to year. Certainly, his Fall/Winter 2011 will forever be the apple of my eye, and I will continue to search for that coat for at least another couple of decades, but this season’s sophisticated gloominess certainly evoked some sense of realism. Save a few fur funnel collars and puffier outerwear, all garments present were well proportioned and forseeably covetable by any degree of personal style and individualism. It is true, though, that a collection is what the stylist makes it, so I’m interested to see whether any creative directors will mash these burgundies, greys, camels and blacks in with unexpected fall colours over the short Summer.
I, for one, must get myself to a show now, so keep an eye out on Instagram!
