"My signature is always the plunging neckline. For me that is the sexiest part of a woman’s body. That small like coming down from your neckline to your navel." - Fe Noel

"My standout piece for this collection is definitely going to be my coat, which I’m now making the classic coat. I’m using the same pattern but just switching around the colors a little bit and playing with colors. It stands out but it’s not too loud. For my last fall collection I used a cognac, a red and a navy. For this season I played with plums and purples. I feel like it’s going to be the piece that everyone remembers." -Fe Noel

"I think what people are noticing is really the outerwear. I have a love for Fall/Winter. I feel like your outerwear can be really special. You can always wear something really fun underneath but everyone gets to see your outerwear." - Fe Noel

"I always play with this very French kind of style. It’s very sexy, very free, the women are very powerful and of course they have their own style. That’s what my brand is about—the woman who walks to the beat of her own drum." - Fe Noel

“You must remember that you’re never going to be sexy for everyone.

You are sexy for someone and for someone else you are not. Being totally nude is not sexy. The art of being sexy is to suggest. To let people have fantasy.” 

Those are the famous words of Jacqueline De Ribes, French aristocrat, designer, fashion icon, and businesswoman who has been dubbed the ‘last queen of Paris’ by some. It was that quote and her overall persona that inspired the latest collection by young Brooklyn bred designer, Fe Noel for her eponymous line.

“When I saw her exhibit in The Met and I really read into it I just loved the woman,” said Noel as she prepped for her big event. “She was also a designer but I loved her aesthetic and the way people talked about her and her style and how she rose in social class—just her charm and her style that got her there. So this collection is based on the American, New York, modern version of that.”

Noel presented her beautiful pieces at the famous Laduree Soho bakery, which provided the perfect Parisian feel as a backdrop. The collection boasted beautiful shades of plum and purple. Fe Noel’s signature plunging necklines offered the suggestive sex appeal the brand has become known for. Several outerwear pieces, including a beautiful color blocked wool trench coat, pushed the collection even further into grace.

“I think what people are noticing is really the outerwear,” said Noel. “I have a love for Fall-Winter. I feel like your outerwear can be really special. You can always wear something really fun underneath but everyone gets to see your outerwear.”

“For the hair we’re basically doing a modern wave with a sleek pull back,” said Genevieve Jean Baptiste, the show’s lead hairstylist. “It’s sleeky and sexy. The women are wearing tailored outfits for today so we just wanted the hair to be tailored but also very sultry, so it’s a mixture of both: modern finger waves in the front and a slick back chignon in the front.”

“Today’s look is just very beautiful Hollywood glam,” said Natasha Denis, lead makeup artist for the event.  “We’re focusing a lot on skin and highlight with beautiful golds, iridescence on the cheeks. For the lip we went with a matte chestnut with like a dash of pink in the center—a little bit of an ombre.”
