For Noon By Noor’s Fall 2020 Runway Collection, designers Noor Rashid Al Khalifa and HayaMohammed Al Khalifa took inspiration from Bahrain’s traditional handcrafted doors and decorativearchitecture.
Intricate geometric shapes, which are carved in a shallow relief on wooden structures, doorwaysand buildings, are celebrated in this season’s fabrics. A scroll jacquard showcases fluid shapesfrom architectural details. Geometric lace in both black and white is more graphic in design,mimicking interlacing fretwork.
A bold scarf-tailoring fabric with a raw fringed edge in black and white provides a strong contrastto softer tones. Tweed, lined in golden oak, modernizes the traditional fabric. Satin in pure ivory isrefined and alluring. Natural textiles in a utility blend linen-wool mix as well as cropped waffleknitwear, contrast the softer silks, chiffon and organza.
“We explored Bahrain’s architectural beauty through fabric and exquisite tailoring, sharp lines andearthly hues. It’s a collection both polished as a pencil skirt or wool trouser, but also leisurely andgraceful,” said Noor Al Khalifa. “Softer, feminine elements such as lace and embroidery areincorporated as details to more masculine shapes, attesting to the brand’s aesthetic,” said Haya AlKhalifa.
Fall’s colors are inspired by the golden hour of sunlight at dusk. Muted tones and monochromeshades are drawn from sandstone and darker woodwork tones. Golden Oak, Rose Smoke, Ivory,White, Peat and Black create the seasonal palette.
Architectural angles and shapes inspire silhouettes and construction details of garments – narrowvertical slits, square necklines, released pleats and pin tucks. Shapes are both neat and minimalistas well as fluid and romantic.
Noon by Noor’s Fall 2020 collection allows women to wear the beauty found in Bahrainiarchitecture in a minimal yet expressive way.
