The Josie Natori Collection was one of the first collections I saw back in September 2013, NYFW and I instantly loved it.
She chose to reference the 1930s style V necklines using lots of textured fabrics, asymmetric cuts and flowing silhouettes.
I like how the princess seams turn into these "double pleats" at the waistline and how the mirror belt was used to bring the attention towards this detail.
I would love to see how long that side zipper is on the side seam.
Its so interesting what you can get away with when working with a head to toe monochromatic palette. This outfit has a lot of volume, yet it "flows" so well on the model.
Is it because of the asymmetric gathers that draws the eye into one side of the body?
This sweater, wow, love the color, this metallic gold/beige in this basketweave knit is timeless. I wrote about getting the look of a crop top without actually wearing one and this is a fun way to do it.
Put the sweater inside a high waist skirt.
I really love this dress, this is how I like my "vintage", retro design lines in modern fabrics.
I like the softness of the dolman sleeve and how the sheen just bounce of the surface of the fabric. I would love to get my hands on this fabric.
Where can I find a pattern for this top?
Isn't it stunning!
I love the oversized collar, the lantern style sleeves, the huge cummerbund effect at the waistline and where the top hits at the hipline.
Asymmetric hemlines and now you know where the inspiration for my luxe sweat shirt Vogue 8952 came from.
(Left) I like this overall look, very edgy with the clean black and white separates with the "blousey", comfortable vibe to it; (center) I love the mesh fabric used for the top with the simple V neckline and cap sleeves; (Right) I thought this Chervon print was so interesting, you probably didn't notice it was chervon right?
Resort style dresses
I was looking at the styling on the blue dress, just a huge stack of oversized bracelets which seems to be a trend in this collection. The look of jewelry is definitely Phillipino inspired (Josie Natori's place of birth).
Just something to think about....
