For the 2015 Fall/Winter season, Tokyo and Seattle-based label Maiden Noir has created a fashion collection with a conscience.
The 'Forever Lost' collection draws on the steadily melting glacial fields for its inspiration. It uses the colors of the glaciers -- basic blues, white, black and shades of gray -- in its garments. The silhouettes are simple, comfortable and masculine, and are complemented by warm, protective materials such as suede, denim, wool and fleece. The title of the Maiden Noir Fall/Winter collection is a reminder that the glacial fields may soon be lost to humanity under the effects of climate change.
This Maiden Noir collection takes inspiration from a pressing and topical subject, proving that fashion can be an art form that takes on the big problems of the modern world.
