Alexandra Jacobs headed uptown this week to check out the newly relocated Yigal Azrouël boutique on Madison Avenue. However, her review is more of a critique on the designer himself than the actual store, with Jacobs condemning everything from his PR strategies to a turban he designed for André Leon Talley. Eventually, she makes her way to the clothes, wheres she spots a Finnish raccoon ombré fur vest that "seemed suited for a Sesame Street character with a secret BDSM fetish." [NYT]
