Brendon Babenzian’s Noah got political in 2016: in addition to voicing his support of the Black Lives Matter movement, Babenzien and his company Noah made sure to wear its inspirations on its sleeve, both literally and figuratively. This meant bold proclamations like “Silence = Death” and “Why Can’t We Be Friends?” emblazoned on photos of battleships. Speaking of battleships, Noah’s seaborne ambitions continued in earnest this year, as collections drew upon Herman Melville’s Moby Dick and seaside towns like Babenzien’s native East Islip, New York for inspiration and aesthetic cues, as evidenced by the brand’s Dover Street Market space.
