First look: Noon by Noor Cruise 2014/15
Bahrain's pearly whites
Inspired by the beautiful Bahraini pearl, Middle Eastern label, Noor by Noor, makes subtle references to the sea's gem throughout its newest collection, found amongst floral embellishments and via the line's sheer fabric selections.
The colour palette for the Cruise 2014/15 collection consists of base colours like navy, white, black and tan — which are accented with shades of pale pink, silver and lavender grey.
Silhouettes are contrasted as the designers use feminine boat neck tops, pencil skirts and short playful shift dresses amongst androgynous hooded parkas and loose-fitted shorts.
A myriad of different embellishments are also seen, creating a sense of opulence and luxury around the wearable/everyday looks. Acrylic plexi embellishments and flower clusters in acid yellow are scattered across blouses and skirts, while modern floral prints — taken from Bahraini blooms — are placed across masculine tailored jackets and shorts.
