NOIR INC. was born out of illustrator Vincent Nappi's desire to bring his two great passions, art and style, together into the same conversation. 

Graphic tees were the logical point of entry. Paired with the same dynamic, bold and sexy imagery that populates his work, each garment becomes a piece of wearable art, infused with nonchalant cool and understated swagger.
 

The NOIR INC. customer loves making a subtle statement, and so each piece is designed to be eminently wearable, the monochromatic palette ensuring that every shirt slots effortlessly into your everyday wardrobe, while the variety of cuts allows for you to confidently step forward into any occasion. Casual, formal, day or night, NOIR INC. has got you covered.

The first collection of NOIR INC. will consist of five different designs printed across four different cuts. There will be a scoop neck tee, two crew neck models, an on trend muscle tee as well as a tank top. All white stock will be used and each design will be a single color black screenprint for a beautiful, soft feeling vintage look. The sample lookbook for this collection shows the possible range for just one of these cuts, and with this Kickstarter we will be taking pre-orders for three of the five designs. 

Each tee is crafted from superior ringspun, combed cotton, has a beautiful unisex fit and will come in sizes S-M-L. Size up for a boxy, current fit, or order your usual size.

HOW THIS MONEY WILL BE USED

The funds raised through this Kickstarter will ensure that this first collection can be sourced from premium quality blanks, printed accurately and quickly and shipped in a timely fashion. A fully secured, optimized and beautifully designed Squarespace web shop will be set up at the current www.noirinc.co address. We've calculated our budget as carefully as possible to take into account every foreseeable expense raised via this Kickstarter and we're very excited to start placing orders and begin production.

Risks and challenges

NOIR INC. is a new brand, confident and enthusiastic.

We've done our homework and we're positive that any hiccups along the road to launch can be easily overcome. However, as with any new endeavor, there are always unforeseen circumstances which can and do pop up. The target funding for this first collection ensures that the core mechanisms (sourcing, printing, labor, shipping & web costs) of NOIR INC. are up to snuff while allowing for any minor snags.

The only variable outside of our control lies in the sourcing, printing and shipping timelines, but we will be working closely with our blank supplier, screenprinter and seamstress to make sure that production runs smoothly. Any and all significant issues will be reported to our backers.

For the purposes of this campaign, we've also decided to exclude international shipping. Once NOIR INC. is up and running, this decision will change, but as a small brand, we feel it's unfair to charge the ridiculous costs of international shipping to our customers along with the headaches of customs, import fees, and all the special complications that come from shipping merchandise overseas. We will be thrilled once this brand's infrastructure and capital is more established and we can give this issue the attention it deserves, but for the sake of simplicity and cost, our international backers must be content with the exclusive digital content offered here.
