NATORI CROSSES THE BRIDGE: Despite the vice presidential debate, Josie Natori drew a crowd when she introduced her first ready-to-wear line, Natorious, Thursday night at Saks Fifth Avenue Beverly Hills. Co-hosts Brooke Davenport, Wendy Goldberg and Liane Weintraub were decked out in the colorful silk charmeuse tops that make up 75 percent of the line, most of which retails between $300 and $500. “In these times, especially, it’s important for a line to be well priced,” said Larry Bruce, vice president and general manager of Saks Beverly Hills. “We’re giving women what they want.”

Natorious is merchandised across from Tory Burch on Saks’ fourth floor, a better contemporary-designer hybrid that the store refers to as “modern” rather than “bridge.” “This way, women can buy two, three or four pieces instead of just one,” said Natori, 61. “It’s really about a lifestyle, for twentysomethings to women my age.”
