Inspired by women

Hello you,

March is always a special month as we celebrate the Women’s International Day (we’d love to have it for the whole month actually). Mostly to pay tribute to all the women out there, those who gave us life, those who taught us things, those who showed us the light, those who just love us without conditions. Those who clearly inspired us and made who we are today. Here’s to our mothers, sisters, BFFs and all the Mother Teresa / Oprah Winfrey /and the Spice Girls (girl power fever!).

The Noces is a fashion brand made for the women, and mostly by the women. We acknowledge the amazing talent of these Malagasy women, their commitment to delivering the best product and their passion in weaving raffia, polishing horn and embroidering your favorite accessories. We can’t thank them enough to join our adventure and make our dreams come true.

Our collection reflects who we are and here is our 5 must-have selection of raffia handbags, horn jewellery as well as our cotton totes and pouches:

-our Madeleine raffia handbag: for our elegant women, classy and low-profile.

-our Elena raffia handbag: for our bohemian women, elegant and dreamers.

-our Friendship horn bangles: for our hipster women, free spirited and rebels.

-our Amour tote bag: for our French lover women, romantic and sweet.

-our Malala pouch bag: for our feminist women, thick skin and tough cookies.

So, which woman are you? Join the movement #thefutureisfemale.

Valentine’s day with style

Hello February, or shall we say Hello Month of Love!

Whatever we may say, there is probably one key topic that everyone is talking at least once in February: Valentine’s Day. It is always a good opportunity to pay tribute to Darling, with an extra smile, an extra attention and an extra present! That is always appreciated and what’s better than seeing that love written, embroidered and carried on every time we have the occasion.

Here is the list of our curated pieces that celebrate love at its best:
-our shaped-heart pins – elegantly named A wave of Love. Either embroidered / woven by hand or made with zebu horn, they are so cute when combined with denim (we advise to use the other two pins – the wave and the anchor – for a navy look).
our Love pouch: the name says it all. Entirely embroidered by hand, it is a must have that you can fill with your make up.
-our belt bags: our Love belt bag and our To The Moon belt bag are just perfect for a night out with Darling. And you are sure not to forget your bag after that romantic dinner.
Our Amour tote bag: how could anyone resist to this gorgeous cotton tote bag, embroidered by hand and so French with its stripes? A must have for your romantic escape.

Well, the choice is yours to say I Love You your own way. Be sure that you will melt Darling’s heart with all these precious gifts ideas so get hers now – there is still time before Valentine’s Day!
Lots of love,
TN

2017 Resolutions

Hi you,

After the holidays, it is time to get serious and draw the lines on how 2017 would / should be. Time to talk the walk and walk the talk, improve a few things and have more fun in the year to come.

So eighties we will be

We know, we predicted that the nineties will still be around and we will not be mistaken. But we will see the rise of the eighties as well, paying tribute to embroidery and pins / brooches / patches. Being unique is the new thing (actually, not that new – we have been advocating to reveal your true self for months now!). We have our Hipster pins set, Let’s Party and A wave of Love to accessorize your outfit. And stay tuned: many more will come this year.

So sustainable we will be

Late last year, we introduced the raffia as a signature material for our accessories. It will be a guest star in your wardrobe this year (and probably beyond). This is a sustainable natural material and deserves to be better known…and worn! Using raffia in a sustainable and ethical way brings a better life and greater opportunities for the communities that grow it. A gesture for the planet and for the fashion sphere. Either as a pouch or a handbag like Lara, tied like Rainbow and Unicorn with its colorful tassels or natural like Madeleine, it will reign on the fashion kingdom.

So happy we will be

Resolutions are not worth a dime if they are not to make us happier! This is why we will launch a limited edition of fashion accessories – including hand bags, totes, clutches, brooches, pins and other jewels – that will spread positive vibes. You are happy, we are happy, and we show and share this happiness to the world. And that is priceless. Just have a look at our Liberty pins set, with its yellow emoticon, the kiss and of course the unbeatable Peace and Love.

We could add so many more things to our 2017 resolutions but at least, we are sure to reach these ones! Let’s stay humble and…down to earth!

With Love,

X TN

Wrapping up 2016

Hi you,

2016 has been an intense year in the fashion world. It was amazing for us as we officially opened our virtual doors six months ago. What would we remember from 2016? And potentially keep for 2017.

What we liked

Clearly the nineties’ come back! We just adore the slip dresses – simple and casual, but can be so chic too. And needless to say, we are in awe with bell sleeves tops and flat mules (we still long for high heels but it is always a relief to see flat shoes occupy the fashion sphere). More importantly, it was such a thrill to see the denim monopolizing the catwalks and the wardrobes of our favorite fashionistas. As well as the belt bag – considered for a long time as a fashion faux pas! This was an inspiring year where we launched – among other models – our own versions of belt bags made with 100 % denim and zebu horn. Our instinct says that our Kiss, To the Moon and Love Belt bags will last way more than a season. Meet them again in 2017 if you haven’t shopped yet your favorites.

What we learned

It was clear that 2016 put a huge focus on accessories. They are the ones who make an outfit outstanding. That little slip black dress would remain unnoticed if you did not the right hat, scarf or jewels that would go with it. We create a wide array of jewelry (bangles, rings and bracelets) that embrace the 2016 spirit – and beyond. That includes Time after Time, Trinidad or Maya.

What we expect

We are a strong believer of timeless pieces made with high-quality materials that will rock season after season. Our collection will remain true to this principle and we will revamp a few of our essentials to make them fit for 2017 and beyond. You will be seeing our totes, pouches, scarves and jewelry next year, made with love by our Malagasy artisans to promote ethical fashion.

And last but not least, Season’s Greetings! On behalf of The Noces team around the world, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

With Love,

X TN
