After paying homage to three female music legends with a trifecta of short-sleeve tees, NOAH returns with a capsule collection that continues to draw from music inspirations. This time, the 13-piece collection features knitwear, hoodies, T-shirts and accessories that pay tribute to English electronic band Depeche Mode’s 1990 Violator album.

NOAH was drawn to how Depeche Mode’s music “spoke to everyday struggles we related to — alienation and loneliness; when to tell the truth; the pursuit of bliss.” Four of the album’s songs, “World in My Eyes,” “Personal Jesus,” “Enjoy the Silence” and “Policy of Truth,” serve as the basis of the collection and influence the graphics’ designs. The band’s iconic rose adorns T-shirts, hoodies and jackets, while imagery from music videos produced for the album covers a selection of long sleeves. “Personal Jesus” printed on a cross and “World in my Eyes” written in a scripted font emblazon the front of tees.

A highlight of the collection includes a pair of single-buckle shoes that were inspired by Doc Martens Brendon Babenzien, Founder and Creative Director at NOAH, owned in the late ’80s and early ’90s. Debossed imprints of Depeche Mode’s rose and NOAH’s “Personal Jesus” cross are found on each side of the shoe. “Every once in a blue moon, an album catches the world’s attention and holds it, finding a new audience with each successive generation,” says Babenzien. “With Violator, Depeche Mode did exactly that, creating a timeless classic that feels as fresh to us today as it did when it came out.”

Take a look at NOAH’s lookbook for the Violator-inspired capsule in the gallery above. Beginning December 12, the collection will drop on the brand’s website, on SSENSE.com, at NOAH’s NYC store and at select retailers including Dover Street Market.

In other news, Vetements and Star Wars will drop a 44-piece collection that spans everything from limited-edition logo T-shirts and oversized hoodies to evening dresses and high heels.
