Combine a cool streetwear brand, with a dark gothic edge, throw in some impressive prints and textures and you have the latest collection by En Noir. With a strong textural aesthetic, and a fantastic use of layering, En Noir has created looks that hark back to the 90’s, a hot trend right now. While last year the dominant textile of En Noir’s collection was leather, several pieces in the latest collection have driven onto a more sportswear path. Evoking a sense of desolation and apocalyptic chic, and woven into it a strong, high fashion look, En Noir has truly embraced modern day menswear.
Carbon dyed crinkle effect prints in dark hues of grey and black add to the gothic mood the collection creates. Fresh, urban bomber jackets ensure the brand keeps within its well-built streetwear aesthetic, and textured jumpers and leg wear add a futuristic armored shell dimension that is strong and powerful. The monochrome palette sees shades of black, grey and white fused and entwined with dark teal green pieces that help to make a well-rounded, cohesive collection.
