Runway Report: Noon by Noor

Following the release of their minimalistic Pre-Fall 2015 collection, Noon by Noor’s Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear took a futuristic turn. The Bahrain-based designer duo, Shaikha Noor Al Khalifa and Shaikha Haya Al Khalifa, combined their seasoned clean lines and feminine aesthetic with a technology-reminiscent, modernistic edge. Boxy metallic jackets, leather trapeze coats and lamé skirts dominated the runway, juxtaposed by subtle floral patterns and structural embellishments.

The designers’ mix of hard and soft was furthered through their pairing of hand-sewn ornamented evening gowns with heavy oxford shoes – creating, fingers crossed, the cool-girl combo for every red carpet to come. Laser cut patterns, vinyl-esque materials, billowy shorts and monochromatic mesh also added an element of sportswear to the diverse standout collection.
