Noon by Noor Resort Look book
Bahraini-based brand Noon by Noor is not showing signs of tailing off designers Shaikha Noor and Shaikha Haya Al Khalifa exclusively reveal on Vogue. The first peeks at the Pre-Fall 2018 collection look as crisp, confident, and laser-focused on quality as ever before.
Noon by Noor’s resort offering was an evolved collection with light, botanical details. Always creating designs based on the fusion between the masculine and feminine, designers found a nice balance for spring with evening silhouettes and deluxe separates with great tailoring. The The mood was elegant yet relaxed enough for an afternoon garden party.
Elie Saab Resort
The designers rich embellishment and intricate embroideries signature to Saab’s gowns are as incredible as the fact that he is self-taught and started designing at age nine.
This season it’s about: Mega-watt glamour infused with a renewed femininity manifests in a lineup of incredible dresses and jumpsuits a Saab must-have.
The sea was Elie Saab’s starting point for Resort. It’s a tried-and-true theme for this in-between season, so named because it once served well-off shoppers who had holiday-time cruises and beach vacations to buy for. Saab, of course, is primarily an evening wear designer, so there weren’t the bikinis and caftans that you might expect elsewhere. Instead, he applied his seaside motifs to his signature tulle gowns; multi color encrustations decorate the bodice of a V-neck style and another with a sheer capelet and cold shoulders. Coral and sea-life embroideries also decorated a terrific little tulle bomber that captured the sporty vibes he’s emphasized on his ready-to-wear runway in recent seasons.
For the most part, though, he sidelined the more casual attitude he’s lately embraced in favor of full-on glamour. The vivid tie-dye motif on a caftan gown evoked birds of paradise, and a deep green palm-leaf print on evening suiting called to mind J.Lo in that unforgettable cut-down-to-there Versace. Saab made a big play for accessories this season, too—not just mirrored sunglasses, shoulder-duster earrings, bangles by the wristful, and minaudieres, but crystal-studded stockings, too! I guess we will wait to see if this trend takes off!
