If you don’t know, now you know.
You’ve heard of Margiela, Raf Simons and Rick Owens. You’ve seen the high demand for anything by Alexander Wang but have you heard of En Noir.
Maybe. Maybe not.
En Noir is the brainchild of Rob Garcia, which is making waves for its timeless collections and strong attention to detail. If having collaborations with A$AP Rocky and Kanye West as a loyal customer isn’t enough, perhaps the fact that Rob Garcia was recently crowned GQ Magazines designer of the year says something about En Noir.
Having got involved in the Fashion Industry later than most, Rob Garcia began making his mark for acclaimed west- coast streetwear label Black Scale. After a stint working alongside Black Scale Boss Mega as head designer, Garcia knew he needed to move on and pursue something of his own creative interest.
In the summer of 2012, Rob Garcia split from Black Scale and began to formulate what is now regarded as one of the most powerful brands currently on the market. The aesthetic as described by the head designer himself is simple. The garments of En noir are practical. They show inspiration from some of the top designers among all the major Fashion Weeks yet the silhouettes are appropriate for everyday wear.
If Streetwear is black and high- fashion is white, then En Noir is sitting in the grey area. The brand portrays a minimalist approach yet its attention to detail is evident through its use of high quality textiles. No aspect of En Noir is overlooked, from the concept through to the construction of each piece to the individual roles of the En Noir family.
En Noir is black, bold and makes a statement. En Noir is pragmatic and immaculate at the same time. It is a brand that is becoming a movement among society but one that comes with a price tag. Check their collections online at www.ennoir.com and get ready to break the bank.
