Hair by Linh Nguyen
Noon by Noor’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection was inspired by the idea of renewal and the lush blooms and greenery that the season brings. This concept translated into beautiful separates in vivid prints in modern cuts. Lead hairstylist Linh Nguyen was inspired by a sporty chic girl and created a sleek, loose ponytail with face-framing wisps that felt as young and fresh as the clothes. “I love how the ponytail looks as if it’s slowly falling out,” said Nguyen. “This is a perfect look for girls in the real world too…it’ll easily take you from day to night.”
For their spring collection at Noon by Noor, designers Shaikha Noor Al Khalifa and Shaikha Haya Al Khalifa cited spring — as in the very season itself — as their inspiration. More specifically, they focused on the idea of renewal, youth and beginnings.
Drawing on the season’s lush blooms and greenery, the duo sent out a fresh, painstakingly detailed collection that juxtaposed clean, minimalist silhouettes with playful prints and embellishment.
Daywear was the strongest; a pair of loose-fitting, pale pink and orange floral-printed silk pants perfectly captured the lineup’s femininity, while a peach panel dress with a sheer panel underlay featured impressive embroidered floral appliqués. The lineup ended with a series of silver looks, including a shift dress, a bomber jacket and a relaxed blazer, which added an edge of masculine cool.
