Preview Cartel Noir's fall 2012 collection before its debut this Saturday at Goldyn
Fall is the perfect season to see the launch of Cartel Noir's latest line. This Saturday, September 29 at Goldyn, the design house will showcase expertly structured garments made from a mix of Merino wool and leather, silk organza and modal. The intelligent combinations of weights and textures result in comfortable but sleek clothing that wears well in a changing season, and Cartel Noir's Greg Garman is excited to see his first full line roll out.

As far as the fall line goes, the design house will be showing an array of tops and bottoms, both in basics and more detailed pieces. From satin blouses and micro modal t-shirts to leather-accentuated riding leggings, "lifetime staple pieces" are Cartel Noir's focus. Structured jackets that pair lightweight exterior fabrics with heavier linings and simple dresses with delicate cut-outs are pieces meant to be easily layered, or gorgeous silhouettes on their own. "I use a lot of fabrics based on tactile sensation and how they wear on the body," says Garman. "I like a lot of old world luxury and modern equivalents," the designer says of the coalescence varying materials.
