NATORIOUS NIGHT: It’s become a tradition for Josie Natori, chief executive officer of Natori Co., to throw a cocktail and dinner soiree at her Paris home for American and French retailers and manufacturers, who enjoyed champagne and a variety of Chinese and Thai culinary treats, during the Salon International de la Lingerie.

The American contingent included Mary Krug, Anne Cox and Diane Mellar from Neiman Marcus; Vicki Vellema, Lisa Haddad, Brenda Hawkins and Stephani Edmunds from Nordstrom; Bergdorf Goodman’s Deborah Soss and Sonya Menon, and Saks Fifth Avenue’s Jennifer DeWinter, Barbara Lipton, Karoline Hope, Anne Caetano and Paris-based Brigitte BenSimon.

Also partying were Olivier Echaudmaison, creative director of Guerlain; Jean-Paul Goode, art director of Galeries Lafayette with his wife, Karen; designer of Irie sportswear Sarah Panahi, a collector of Natori lingerie, and Eric Wiseman of VF Corp. and Tobie Garfinkle of VF’s Bestform Foundations.
