Noon By Noor Fall 2014 is inspired by patterns found in the natural environment, from cloud formations and crystalline structures to geometric patterns seen in minerals and represented through this season's signature prints, and a palette of ice blue, cool mint, mauve, navy, burgundy, and vanilla with pops of yellow, chartreuse and royal purple.
The collection includes masculine tailoring and oversized silhouettes seen through sportswear, eveningwear and luxurious and voluminous coats. Noon By Noor plays with texture by combining felt and faux fur, chiffon and heavy crepe and leather and felt, while neoprene, waffle wool mohair and a houndstooth jacquard wool add to the textured effect. Exquisite detailing and intricate embellishments adorn tops and cascade gowns for a dramatic effect.
The show featured music by The Misshapes, voluminous ponytails by Jorge Luis for PRIVE, nails by Cinnamon Bowser for Zoya and make up by Neil Young for MAC Cosmetics. I've been obsessing over the bold, dark lip I've been seeing all over the runway, with the look at Noon By Noor my favorite. For the look, Neil Young mixed a cabernet lip color base by mixing MAC Lip Pencil in Vino with MAC Lipstick in Smoked Purple and Flat Out Fabulous, completing the lip look by dusting the center of the mouth with an ultraviolet powder (MAC Pigment Powder in Hi-Def Cyan).
