For my first show of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, the sisters behind Noon by Noor awakened my senses immediately. With hues ranging from earthy to electric, the designs took the audience on an exciting journey. Their careful choice in fabrics along with close attention to fine tailoring, elevated day and evening looks to a memorable level.
I found their pieces in bronze metallic especially intoxicating (right and left above). Eyecatching, but sophisticated enough to escape being overly flashy. The elegance of the bronze is especially apparent when paired with an earthy green silk. Instantly grounding the shorts for a look that screams glamour, and not street walker (It’s a fine line ladies).
Also favorites were a flowing jacket and pant combo with beaded bright green shoulder accents. The juxtaposition between the flowy suit and structured shoulder caps create a sexy spin on a classic idea.
