Noon by Noor spring/summer 2019 collection catwalk show for NYFW
Noon by Noor helped get fashion week off to a strong start as they presented a collection inspired by Bahrain. Designers Noor Rashid Al Khalifa and Haya Mohamed Al Khalifa often draw on their Middle Eastern heritage as a starting point for their designs yet every season they manage to bring both a different aspect of their culture and their personal vision to the runway.
The designers drew on the landscape of sand, sea and sky for their soft primary colour palette and balanced it against the boldness of stark black and white. They also added two patterns for graphic interest: a delightful palm print and a blue and white stripe that felt a bit nautical. Silhouettes were also inspired by traditional Middle Eastern garments that the designers managed to translate seamlessly into modern designs ranging from shorts and a sweatshirt to a ballgown.
The natural fibres in their clothing created movement and gave many pieces the appearance of being lighter than air as they wafted effortlessly down the runway trailing behind the models. This was especially effective in some of the striped garments.
As always, their designs had a deft and distinctively feminine hand even in their pants and shirts. Noon by Noor seems to be one of the few houses that does separates and dresses with equal skill. This gives their runway the feeling of a truly full collection where fans would be able to pick up a piece for nearly every occasion day or night and contributes to the feeling that Noon by Noor is a collection that truly has a bit of something for every woman.
