Miss A Columnist

Grace Yco is the San Diego Editor for Miss A. Denying her writinglust finally caught up with her. She was forced to trade in biology for blogging and hasn’t looked back since (moments spent Hermèsmerized notwithstanding).

She grew up in Japan, considers California home, but feels like she belongs in Paris. In her bag, you will always find three books: one for reading, one for writing and one for planning. Yes she has tablets, but committing to them is another story, and so that relationship remains complicated.

You can find her scouring the web, musing over luxury elitism vs. fashion democracy, and dilly-dallying in rapturous moments of absolute silence (she is not a nun). Grace is also sensitive. And sometimes funny. She’s a professional bikini bard by day and a bookworm by night.

Noon By Noor Spring 2014

Fields of daises projected on walls greeted guests as they arrived for the Noon by Noor show.  Returning for their third showing at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York, the designer duo, cousins Shaikha Noor and Shaikha Haya, provided the full house with a breath of fresh Spring 2014 air.

With their native Bahrain’s 400 year old Tree of Life serving as the inspiration behind the collection, the looks sent down the runway paid tribute to natural beauty:  bold prints of greenery, palm leaf motifs, daisy graphics and intricate floral appliques.  A play on silhouettes and textures anchored some of the defining elements of the line—voluminous jackets, full gowns, pencil skirts with slits, and leather-and-lace combinations.  Every collection of Noon by Noor is recognizable by the brand’s signature use of lace and this season was no different with the incorporation of special honeycomb lace.   Their springtime colorway spanned the deepest of orange, along with off-white, mauve, ox-blood and navy.  A cache full of lightness and fun, made unique by meticulous design, Noon by Noor Spring 2014 is sophisticated-meets-sporty—amped  by true elegance inspired by nature. Here are some of my favorite looks.
