Making The Cut25-------
When Yigal Azrouël launched Cut25 three years ago, his idea was to translate staples from his namesake collection to a lower price point. The latest Resort lineup stands as proof that the Israeli designer’s contemporary line has developed an identity of its own. Many of the new offerings—like nipped-in jacquard blazers and body-con scuba jersey dresses—followed Azrouël’s tried-and-true formula for urban staples with a sexy twist. But there was a decidedly energetic, eclectic vibe about the striped denim used here, which looked less nautical and more street-ready when shown with a leather biker jacket. Colorful hand-knit sweaters came backed in breezy silk georgette, and kicky flared skirts looked modern paired with boyish oxfords. “We’re experimenting with all the possibilities for Cut25 and learning that our customer wants to play with layers and promote her own individual style,” Azrouël told Style.com. The new lookbook images, modeled by Style.com/Print cover girl Ellinore Erichsen, debut here.
