This season, Fe Noel’s Fall Winter 2016 collection is inspirited by the style
of Countess Jacqueline de Ribes. de Ribes is widely known for being a
businesswoman, designer and philanthropist but her style and disposition
caught the attention of our creative director. After viewing
de Ribes exhibit at the Met, Fe Noel was inspired to learn
more about Jacqueline de Ribes.
(Countess Jacqueline de Ribes)
“I always play with this very french kind of style.Its very sexy, very free the women are verypowerful and of course they have their own style.That's what my brand is about - the woman who walksto the beat of her own drum.” - Fe Noel
When getting ready for her fashion presentation, Fe Noel sat down
with Abi Ishola founder & editor-in-chief of Beyond Classically
Beautiful. Ms. Ishola was able to speak with our creative director
to get insight on her Fall/Winter 2016 collection.
“When I saw her exhibit in The Met and I really read into it, I just
loved the woman. She was also a designer but I loved her
aesthetic and the way people talked about her and her
style… so this collection is based on the American,
New York, modern version of that.”
“Glamorous people bring something to others.They are seductive, attractive - and it hasnothing to do with frivolity. Glamour sticksto people. An object is not glamorous,but places where people go are glamorous.That’s why New York is the glamour capitalof the world.” - Jacqueline de Ribes
"Being totally nude is not sexy. The art of being sexy isto suggest. To let people have fantasy." - Jacqueline de Ribes.
When tying the persona of Jacqueline de Ribes and Fe Noel's signature styles,
our creative director's vision came to life with our Autumn collection.
Flaunting different shades of purple and burgundy while mixing textures
and tones, Fe Noel's F/W16 ties the Parisian and New Yorker into one collection.
Merging Paris and New York, the collection was debuted at Paris' famous
Ladurée Soho location. The Parisian interior design housed the perfect
scenery for this fall's collection. Preview pieces from the collection below:
"My signature is always the plunging
neckline. For me that is the sexiest part
of a woman’s body. That small line coming
down from your neckline to your navel." - Fe Noel
