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

Christmas Spirit

Hi you,

Some of us are counting days until Christmas – and there are exactly 40 days to go. We have to admit that Christmas holidays are our favorite break. This warm atmosphere, the family gathering, the laughter…all values that are closer to our heart. Here are top 3 reasons why we just love Christmas.

The food

This is probably the only time of the year where we eat in one place all our favorite foods. From the traditional foie gras (so French but we can’t ignore our deep roots!) to the Yule log, our palate can’t resist to the Christmas delicacies. We will never miss our Advent calendar to get an early taste of chocolate – our guilty pleasure.

The atmosphere

We both tried Christmas under the sun and Christmas under the snow. Both experiences were magical: you would find this festive air everywhere. The decorations, the joy and happiness, the bright colors: it is an inspiring season, fascinating to capture and to share around us. A moment to remember and that brings us back to our childhood. Every year.

The gifts

Well, this is our favorite part – and the most exciting one. We are probably too old (or maybe not!) to make a Christmas list and send it to Santa Claus. But we can still give tips and even choose what we would like. And that is where we come into place: an exclusive collection of with a Christmas spirit. From the Santas Boots to the red pouches, be sure to make someone’s happy.

And you, what do you love most about Christmas? We would love to hear your Christmas stories! Send us a note at hello@thenoces.com, follow us on social media and share your favorite Christmas moment with the hashtag #xmasthenoces. A few lucky will receive an exclusive Christmas present. You have until 15 December 2016 midnight (Portugal time zone) so hurry up and spread the Christmas spirit!

With Love,

X TN
