I dragged my tired self to the 9am show for Yigal Azrouël’s Fall 2011 presentation. It was well worth it.

The energetic vibrant collection was just the Cup of Joe I needed to wake me from my fashion week fatigue.

The menswear inspired collection celebrated the strength and power of artistic femininity.

We saw many outerwear pieces in this collection. I especially loved mandarin orange opera coat paired with a grey pullover and ivory cropped pants.

We saw very well tailored looks, oversized knit tails, coats rested on shoulders, starched white shirts, cropped cigarette pants and a few gowns on a colour palette of salmon pink, jade green, mandarin orange, grey, ivory and black.

Key accessories included black bow-ties, gold ties, headbands, leather and suede wedge ankle boots plus skinny belts.

Front Row: Vanessa Hudgens

Favourites: Check shearling vest, jade Swarovski crystal encrusted blouse paired with salmon pants and salmon dress with tux shirt and gold tie

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Chloe Sevigney, Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth, Ginnifer Goodwin, Liv Tyler and Thandie Newton.
