Noir Kei Ninomiya Fashion for Women
Kei Ninomiya doesn't like to use color as a statement - the designer prefers to focus on unusual and innovative techniques. This sweater is intricately knitted from a semi-sheer ribbed fabric, and has fluted cuffs and wispy overlays at the shoulders. Wear a tonal tank or bra underneath.
Showcasing his label's talent for experimenting, Kei Ninomiya compares the white transparent fabric in his pieces to space or air, resulting in fresh, floaty clothes. This top is cut from weightless tulle that's ruffled to accentuate the billowy silhouette and outlined with strips of black faux leather. Underpin yours with a camisole or tank.
Kei Ninomiya isn't a fan of color and prefers to design in black - he believes that this way you can really appreciate the construction of each piece. These high-rise pants have been crafted in Japan from fluid crepe and have an exaggerated wide leg that just hits the ankle, while a waist tie provides subtle definition. Temper the voluminous shape with a close-fitting top.
Kei Ninomiya always details his clothing with structural embellishments. This ruched georgette dress has a plunging neckline that's held together by thick buckled straps. It's designed to be layered, so wear yours over a crisp white T-shirt and slim brogues.
This bomber jacket is a beautiful example of Kei Ninomiya's skill of folding and pleating fabrics into extraordinary shapes. It's been made in Japan from black faille and ruched throughout the shoulders; the effect can be loosened using the bow at the back. Wear yours over dresses or try it with jeans - the cropped length looks great with high-rise pairs.
Noir Kei Ninomiya's sweater-harness hybrid will need a T-shirt or vest underneath to balance its cutout design, giving you endless styling options. This fetish-inspired piece has open-knit sleeves and faux leather straps that are held together by punky silver rings. Roll up the cuffs like it was styled at the Spring '18 presentation.
Noir Kei Ninomiya's pieces are always constructed and sewn so beautifully. This dress has been made in Japan from two open panels of striped faille that are held together by ribbons and loosely draped over a delicate lining. Style yours with sculptural mules or ankle boots.
Kei Ninomiya started his career as a pattern cutter for Rei Kawakubo at Comme des Garçons, and it shows - his sculptural designs for Noir Kei Ninomiya are always carefully thought-out and intricately realized. This harness is made from countless strips of faux leather that have been meticulously placed to resemble a garland of black blooms. Strap yours on over a minimal black outfit.
Noir Kei Ninomiya clothing is almost exclusively made in black, which means that the designer uses his skills as a pattern cutter to create designs that really stand out. This jacket is cut from ethereal, light tulle and tempered with multiple faux leather straps that can be adjusted to your shape. Layer yours over - what else - the deepest obsidian shades.
For Spring '18, Kei Ninomiya used layers of tulle to give a sense of air and space to his designs - this skirt is a perfect example. Each sheet of fabric is defined by faux-leather trims and placed asymmetrically over the other, creating a complex gathered waist that fastens with multiple buckles. Wear yours with close-fitting black shorts underneath.

We get that cutouts are currently trending, but what we didn’t expect is for Noir Kei Ninomiya to literally dissect this top in two halves. Luckily a layer of mesh provides the sheerest amount of cover in between, which is better than nothing right? Above and below that are two herringbone knitted panels, the yoke of which is slouched through the shoulders, and features metal eyelet detailing. For some extra protection, slip a tank beneath.Noir Kei Ninomiya knitted topSlips onRound neck, short sleeves, semi sheer organza panel at front waist, relaxed fit, chunky herringbone knit at shoulders and at hem46% nylon, 38% acrylic, 16% wool; 100% polyester; 100% synthetic leather Dry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 20
You didn’t think Noir Kei Ninomiya would design a basic T shirt without at least some technical ingenuity, right? Of course not. The Comme des Garçons protégé is known for his innovation, and his genius characterises the humble jersey confines of this crewneck. Notice something different about the sleeves? That’s because they’re welded on with eyelets, and actually the result of a herringbone knit. It’s a perfect introduction to avant garde.Noir Kei Ninomiya knitted and jersey T shirtSlips onRound neck, short sleeves, chunky herringbone knit at sleeves, eyelet detail at shoulders, slits at sides, stepped hem100% cotton; 46% nylon, 38% acrylic, 16% wool; 1005 polyester; 100% synthetic leather Dry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 25
Kei Ninomiya’s all black oeuvre at Noir Kei Ninomiya is a tribute to his time spent as a pattern cutter under the great Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons. The avant garde articulation of fabric that creates this T shirt displays his craft. Made in Japan, two opposing panels complete the silhouette, one from chiffon layered like a vest over the shoulders, the other from cotton to render the front and back, both of which cinch at the waist with an inbuilt buckle belt.Noir Kei Ninomiya chiffon and cotton T shirtSlips onRound neck, short sleeves, buckle belt at waist, semi sheer panel at sides, asymmetric hem100% polyester; 100% cotton Dry cleanTrue to sizeSize small: Length 30
Made in Japan, each piece by Noir Kei Ninomiya showcases the eponymous designer’s technical genius and mastery of silhouette. Helped along by his all black palette that shows up each deliberate fold, he conjures up this bomber jacket with a tonal tie that threads through the chest and gathers up the shoulders into corrugated versions of classic puffed sleeves. Not your average MA 1, to say the least.Noir Kei Ninomiya woven bomber jacketExposed zip fastening at frontBand collar, long sleeves, flared shoulders, ruched at shoulders, two buttoned flap pockets at front, ribbed trims, straps at back, two interior pockets, fully lined100% polyester; 79% cupro, 19% nylon, 2% polyurethane; linnig 100% cuproDry cleanTrue to sizeSize small: Length 20
“To make a silhouette, you never need colours,” Noir Kei Ninomiya explained to 1 Granary about his brand, Noir. This sums up his signature monochrome aesthetic that lets you see all the nuances of how his designs are pieced together. Take this lustrous satin dress: there’s no fussy detail to distract from the neatly structured bodice, thickly pleated waistband or full skirt. Hold the attention there by keeping styling tonal.Noir Kei Ninomiya satin dressExposed button fastening at frontRound neck, long sleeves, darts at chest, gathered waistband, two slip pockets at sides, flared skirt, fully lined100% polyester; lining 100% polyesterDry cleanTrue to sizeSize small: Length 48
Noir Kei Ninomiya stays true to an all black aesthetic to better reveal all the finer details and unusual fits of its designs. Put into practice, that translates to this satin midi dress that draws your attention to voluminous puffed sleeves and a gathered waistband, rather than any fussy fabrics. Cut to skim down to your calves, it leaves room for a pair of architectural ankle boots – in black, if you want to honour this designer’s ethos.Noir Kei Ninomiya satin dressConcealed zip fastening at backRound neck, short puffed sleeves, fit and flare silhouette, frilled trim at cuffs and at waist, darts at chest, flared skirt, fully lined100% polyester; lining 100% polyesterDry cleanTrue to sizeSize small: Length 50
You might see Noir Kei Ninomiya’s designs and be inclined to call them art, but to the designer himself, the sculptural lines and craft techniques are all about one thing: making clothes, plain and simple. That doesn’t quite do justice to the artistry of this monochrome dress, though. Look close and appreciate how the whorls of pleated tulle huddle together thanks to tonal ties and sleek buckles at the sides.Noir Kei Ninomiya tulle dressSlips onHigh neck, flared capped sleeves, all over pleated tulle with structured straps detail, buckle straps at sides, flared at skirt, contrasting trims, asymmetric hem100% polyester; 100% synethic leather Hand washTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 44
Kei Ninomiya’s all black oeuvre at Noir Kei Ninomiya is a tribute to his time spent as a pattern cutter under the great Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons. The avant garde articulation of fabric that creates this T shirt displays his craft. Made in Japan, two opposing panels complete the gathered silhouette, one from chiffon to subtly expose the back, the other from cotton to render the front, both of which cinch at the waist with an inbuilt buckle belt.Noir Kei Ninomiya chiffon and cotton T shirtSlips onRound neck, short sleeves, buckle belt at waist, gathered at waist, semi sheer panel at back, flared hem100% polyester; 100% cotton Dry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 20
Why does Noir Kei Ninomiya stick to an all black colour palette? As the eponymous designer told 1 Granary, “if you focus on the black you see more of the differences in fabric; more nuances.” The former Comme des Garcons protégé shapes these trousers into a voluminous wide leg fit that’s pleated by a belt tie at the waist and skims across your calves with its hem. Honour the label’s aesthetic with all black styling.Noir Kei Ninomiya woven trousersSlips onRelaxed fit, wide, high rise, elasticated at waist, self tie at waist, two slip pockets at sides, tonal stitching 100% polyesterDry cleanTrue to sizeSize small: Rise 21, inside leg 21, leg opening 28
Since Noir Kei Ninomiya first launched under the Comme des Garçons empire in 2012, it’s carved out an all black aesthetic centred on construction. The reason for the monochrome? You can really appreciate each fold and subtle change in texture. A case in point, this jumper combines a round neck long sleeved knit with tonal silk ribbon threaded from cuff to cuff. For styling? Tuck the hem into your inkiest separates.Noir Kei Ninomiya silk and knitted jumperSlips onRound neck, long sleeves, fine knit, satin panels at front and at sleeves, self tie at cuffs, ribbed trims100% polyester; 100% silkDry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 20
There’s something so incredibly regal to Noir Kei Ninomiya’s designs. They’re never of the norm, but tip just on the right side of avant garde; think wearable art. This top is entirely diaphanous in its organza profile, a fabric chosen specifically so it shifts and causes its own creasing and shadows. The introduction of hefty ribbed panels at the cuffs and turtleneck collar are welded by eyelet detailing, giving it both ergonomic and sporty nods.Noir Kei Ninomiya organza topSlips on Turtleneck, long sleeves, sheer, silver toned eyelets and herringbone knitted trims100% polyester; 46% nylon, 38% acrylic, 16% wool; 100% synthetic leather polyurethane resinDry cleanTrue to sizeSize small: Length 20
You’ll never find a Noir Kei Ninomiya design that looks normal. By that, we mean boring. The Comme des Garçons protégé is famous for his technical prowess, and it’s displayed in full glory on this jacket, or rather harness hybrid. The faux leather core is constructed like a cage, entirely cutout, yet contained with interlocking straps. Add to that armour like herringbone knitted sleeves which are welded at the shoulders with chainmail eyelets.Noir Kei Ninomiya knitted and faux leather jacketExposed button fastening at sideSquare neck, long sleeves, eyelet details at shoulders, chunky herringbone knit at sleeves, all over cutout panels 46% nylon, 38% acrylic, 16% wool; 100% polyester; 100% synthetic leather Dry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 18
