“It all started from a vintage kimono I have,” said Josie Natori of pre-fall, displaying a chic kimono she made for her lineup. The tight collection incorporated graphic and floral elements found in the original piece, from the floral jacquard fabrics she rendered in flirtatious fit-and-flare dresses to bomber jackets. More figuratively, she embroidered floral patterns in denim. “We had a huge debate about doing denim,” she related. “Everyone convinced me, so I said if we were going to make it, it had to be glamorous.” A tailored suit version stood out, but the real winner was a belted black one-shoulder jumpsuit with ruffled neckline and sleeve — probably because Natori herself is all about effortless poise and elegance, not necessarily experimentation.
