Josie Natori RTW Fall 2014

Josie Natori’s ready-to-wear has been getting more polished with every season, and her fall collection was her best yet. She opened with two terrific groups — one in gray, another in black — of bonded wool toppers over simple sheaths and elegant three-piece looks with either lean dresses or cropped pants.


She then transitioned from city chic to “Russian culture,” a theme she rendered subtly as models walked to Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake.” Here, there were lots of luxurious fabrics and a modern approach to embellishment: beaded detail on pants and coats, 3-D appliqués and fake Mongolian lamb accents on easy coats. Knitted rabbit capelets added to the sophistication. A terrific red-and-black jacquard coat highlighted the outerwear, all of which reflected Natori’s ease that extends beyond lingerie. Her graceful approach to the body surfaced in her bare, fluid evening gowns cut in sturdy day fabrics like double-face bonded jersey, textured wool and even a scuba cloth.
