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!
