NEW YORK — Yigal Azrouël is a real cut-up. For spring 2014, the dashing designer has created a sharply tailored collection featuring shades of black, white and grey, with peek-a-boo cut-outs on the side, above the breasts and at the midriff that show just a hint of skin.

He also uses eyelet prints and mesh fabrics in transparent bomber jackets, coats and jackets that achieve the neat trick of exposing the body while covering it up at the same time.

 The collection has a streetwise attitude, with the clean, architectural lines the designer is known for.  

The collection has a streetwise attitude, with the clean, architectural lines the designer is known for. And it utilizes innovative fabrics in unusual ways — an Azrouël trademark. He uses lambskin leathers that have a lightweight look — you'd never guess that the fabric in a croc-embossed strapless dress or a color-block moto jacket is lambskin or leather — and coated jacquards with texture that beg to be touched.

Azrouël breaks up the monocromatic tone of the collection with several looks in branch print patterns — a silk branch-print gown with a criss-cross neckline, side cutouts and a thigh-high slit is a stunner for a body-conscious woman — and some styles in a black-and-white geometric jacquard pattern.

Azrouël will present his collection at Fashion Houston on Nov. 14. He will also show his Cut 25 contemporary collection on the Fashion Houston runway Nov. 13. He will make a personal appearance at Tootsies on Nov. 14 from noon to 3 p.m.
