Ahead of their runway reveal, Bahraini designers and cousins Sheikha Noor and Sheikha Haya Al Khalifa offer a glimpse of their Noon By Noor Fall 2017 collection, via a sketch. Titled Captivating, the new lineup is scheduled to unveil on February 9 during New York Fashion Week. In conversation with Vogue Arabia, the designers share: “Our Fall 2017 collection offers a smooth transition from our Pre-Fall 2017 collection, where masculine shapes and feminine silhouettes are combined to achieve sophistication. The draping, which accentuates the feminine shapes, is also a key element in this collection.”
Celebrating their inspiration formula, the sketch features a tailored, two-piece suit, paired with a sandy turtleneck sweater. “The camel jacket and pants represent the juxtaposing of masculine and feminine shapes, which is the essence of this collection.”
With the turn of every season, the designers sharpen their design signature by exploring new techniques. Previously, the duo upgraded the brand’s aesthetic through asymmetric cuts, beading, and sheer fabrics. “A new and innovative element in the Fall 2017 collection is the cutaway neckline, which is incorporated in some tops and dresses, giving these pieces a very modern feel,” the designers conclude.
