New York City, NY. – For Noon By Noor’s Fall/Winter 2020 Runway Collection showcased during New York Fashion Week, designers Noor Rashid Al Khalifa and Haya Mohammed Al Khalifa were inspired by Bahrain’s traditional handcrafted doors and ornamental architecture. The geometric shapes found carved on wooden structures and doors throughout the nation, are celebrated in this season’s fabrics and textiles.
“We explored Bahrain’s architectural beauty through the fabric and exquisite tailoring, sharp lines, and earthy hues. It’s a collection both polished as a pencil skirt or wool trouser, but also leisurely and graceful,” said Noor Al Khalifa.
The color palette was influenced by the golden hour of sunlight at dusk. Muted tones and monochrome hues are evocative of sandstone and darker woodwork tones. Golden Oak, Rose Smoke, Ivory, White, Peat, and Black complete the seasonal palette. – GM
