Where the runway meets the street

NoirBasic is playing in a tough town. Based out of Paris, arguably the holy land of all things fashion, the new line is looking break through in a very cut throat market. Looking at their varsity and leather jackets, shown above as part of their Summer 2009 preview, you can almost be sure they’re ready to rock. 

What is key to BasicNoir is their long term goal for “refined, uncompromising high quality vision” that keeps elegance “regardless of the period.” High grade materials play the most important role in this line – lambskin, alligator, ostrich, .925 sterling silver and natural silk. The output is a short run, handmade collection of jackets and hoodies that just work. The leather jacket is a banger.
