Noon By Noor Fall 2013

I love all sorts of designer families.  Noon by Noor designers Sheikha Noor Al Khalifa and Sheikha Haya Al Khalifa are cousins.  Their second outing at NY Fashion week was inspired by the transient culture of their home country of Bahrain.

The knitted wool caps, long caps and scholastic looks reminiscent of the British boarding school days of my father's time.  He, like many foreign students had parents who wanted their child to receive an International education and exposed themselves to culture.  Winter weather was a new thing, etiquette, language...  The cool color palette of the sportswear was grey, oxblood, blue, black with hints of gold.   The evening wear warmed up with rich red in silk.  

I"m not sure how many stores actually carry this line yet, but you can buy it on their own website. It is a good looking collection for only a second season, though I don't see a consistent aesthetic yet.  I'm looking forward to some great things from these designing cousins.

Who are your favorite designing families?
