In New York, Noon By Noor’s modern modes are effortlessly designed with a focus on striking prints and intricate embellishments. For these two designers, Shaikha Noor Al Khalifa and Shaikha Haya Al Khalifa, it’s all about a refined aesthetic that fuses understated luxury with a playful femininity. They are cousins and friends. Inspired by both Eastern and Western influences, the talented twosome places emphasis on fine tailoring, clean silhouettes and attention to detail.
Noon By Noor is a Bahrain-based womenswear label founded in 2008 by the designers. They both studied fashion in the United States. After graduation, they returned to their country to bring their vision to life. Celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Solange Knowles, Alexa Chung and Kate Bosworth often appear wearing their clothes. Noon By Noor’s clothes are available at Saks Fifth Avenue Bahrain, Symphony Style, Harvey Nichols and Nichols Riyadhi.
Another popular fashion company, All Comes From Nothing X Coome, designed by Eva Xu, presented an understated fall/winter ’18 collection for New York Fashion Week. Coome, a designer bag brand originally from the U.K., uses travel as a starting point, bringing diversity and young sprits together. By traveling through different cities, perusing different sceneries and sharing different traveling stories, Coome has built a unique ecosystem of travel, life and culture. These clothes are tailored, yet smartly styled and shapely.
Closing out New York and Los Angeles fashion weeks, fashion label Mister Triple X celebrated their 10th anniversary. Their collection is military-inspired to reflect the life experiences of designer Erik Rosete, during his 5-year stint as the label’s creative director. There are several stylish camouflage pieces, as well as sleek swimwear in the line. Their brand, World War X, offers many camouflage pieces and big-shoulder jackets.
On the runway, guest models included Miss Costa Rica, Karina Ramos, fitness supermodel Jeff Seid, Arissa LeBrock, the Castillo Twins, Marc Copella, Juliet Jane and Sandro Yves. The show was the final stop on the World War X fall/winter tour and served as a preview to the brand’s next collection, which will debut at Miami Swim Week.
