We love a good conceptual narrative and love it even more when it's executed well. Enter the Autumn/Winter 2016-2017 collection by Italian-born, Los Angeles-based Queen of Noise. A relative newcomer to the fashion world, the brand was launched by Italian designer Ambra Zavatta in 2013 and has since made a strong impression with finely tuned collections and handmade, luxurious pieces. We initially discovered the brand through their Spring/Summer 2016 collection, which caught our eye with their dark, moody monochrome looks that are elegant as they are comfortable. We then reached out to the designer and were treated to the upcoming winter collection which we are excited to present to you now.

The name of the collection is "Akai Ito", which translates in Chinese to the "Legend of The Red Thread of Fate". According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red cord around the ankles of those that are destined to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. The collection is driven by this myth and it shines through the clothes, not only literally but figuratively as well. These are incredibly luxurious pieces that are not only sophisticated but are oozing with sensuality and seductiveness. We love the use of deep red and abstract splashes of color that run through the collection. The materials are all top quality and utilize fine Italian craftsmanship. Our favorites pieces are the black and red robe that feels equal parts evening wear and intimate. The all black jacket and dresses are also standout items.
Queen of Noise is currently sold in some of the best Los Angeles shops including Orphic, A Plus One and Church Boutique. We are excited about this brand and can't wait to see what's next from Mr. Zavatta. For more information please visit Queen of Noise and Facebook.
