The brand Noah, founded by Brendon Babenzien, is dropping its Spring/Summer 2018 collection this month. As evidenced in the look book, the inspiration behind the clothing line stems from the tenacity of youth—and not just youth in its physical form, but a youthful mindset that permits creativity, fun, and freedom.
Select pieces from the collection are currently in stores at Noah NY, and will be available at Noah Clubhouse Tokyo on Feb. 10. Items will be available on the online store noahny.com on Feb. 15, with new pieces dropping every Thursday. Dover Street Market London will have items in store and online on Feb. 15, as well.
Babenzien previously worked as the creative director for Supreme. He started Noah in 2002 after leaving Supreme for the first time, and then returned to serve as Supreme's creative director again in 2006; Noah shuttered in 2007. Babenzien left Supreme for the second time in 2015 and restarted Noah.
A native of upstate New York, Babenzien’s brand Noah leans toward prep staples, such as khaki jackets with epaulets, nautical stripes, and wider straight-leg white pants that are both fitting in the Hamptons or SoHo. You can see the rest of his Spring/Summer 2018 look book below.
