Maiden Noir took cues from the Pacific Northwest for Fall/Winter 2018, and now the Seattle and Tokyo-based label has turned to the worlds of art and architecture for its Spring/Summer 2019 “Jardim de Flor” collection. To curate the assortment, the brand looked specifically to Robert Burle Marx — an artist credited with introducing modernist landscaping to Brazil — allowing his propensity for gardens and parks to inform the floral-heavy prints within the mix.
Maiden Noir also infused details akin to the gauchos of the pampas (“grasslands”) such as sharply-constructed silhouettes and a uniform-like aesthetic, providing a gritty contrast against the flowery patterns. A rainbow palette marks an upbeat spring mood, with turquoise, olive green, orange and various shades of purples and pinks included throughout. The brand’s core items return, including natural-dyed hoodie fleeces, button-down shirts, ranch jackets, track pants and trousers. Colorblocking and tie-dye designs across outerwear and tops add additional print options. Meanwhile, camouflage brings in a traditional streetwear sensibility on shorts, bottoms and accessories. Bucket hats, sports caps, shoulder bags and sunglasses round out the looks.
