For Spring 2015 Noon by Noor drew inspiration from fresh blooms and lush greenery – an increasingly ubiquitous motif across the New York Fashion Week shows, whether it was Carolina Herrera’s digital floral prints or Oscar de la Renta’s silk gowns with leaf embroidery.
However, the Bahrain-based designers had their own interpretation of what spring means, and it looked far more tropical than garden party. Vivid island-inspired prints appeared on everything from column dresses and trench coats to sweeping gowns this season, while metallic and mesh utilitarian outwear toughened up the playfulness of the print pieces. And yet, the collection was strongest when the designers stayed away from print, something we’ve seen seasons prior and know they are capable of, and moved towards strong silhouettes in rich colors such as look 15, a sunshine yellow waistcoat with a blue painted check sleeveless shirt and yellow shorts, which shows their range as relatively new designers on the New York Fashion Week scene.
Also noteworthy? Look 10. A sheer panel dress with floral appliqués guaranteed to be a crowd pleasure from the Burj Khalifa to the Empire State building.
