S&E norway&denmark* Established in 2005, Danish brand Noir is based on a vision of making meaningful and desirable consumption possible for the modern, conscious fashion consumer. Epitomising graceful sophistication with a distinctive contemporary edge, the AW11 collection displays the brand’s signature love of sculptural tailoring, combined with quality fabrics and slender silhouettes to create a highly wearable and classic collection. In 2008, the diffusion line Bllack Noir was established and if that wasn’t enough to keep the CEO (Sysser Philipson) and the head designer (Tilde Bjerregaard) busy, Noir’s sister company Illumniati II is a co-initiator and partner in an ongoing endeavour to help the development of fair-trade and organic cotton in Uganda, Africa, seeing Noir become a signatory to the UN Global Compact. Newly relaunched for the upcoming SS12 season, we will soon see Noir and Bllack Noir merge into one brand, with lots of exciting collaborations planned for future seasons. If one thing is for sure, expect lots more black!
