Josie Natori presented her Fall 2016 Ready-To-Wear Collection this past Wednesday at The Doubles Club (the club where Ken and I had our rehearsal dinner). As always, the presentation was beautifully and elegantly put together. Unlike previous shows or presentations, this was held more like a cocktail party than a typical show (bring on the champagne!).
The dominant theme of the collection was luxe layers and opulent jewel tones. As an ode to the artistry and craftsmanship of my mother-in-law’s native Philippines, there were a lot of rich textures and intricate embellishments, which is classic Natori. The pieces shown were a mixture of daytime and eveningwear (although heavy on the eveningwear), truly glamorous and utterly chic.
Prices range from $600 to over $6,000 for the special evening Looks (that is when the Natori family discount comes in handy). It is carried at Fine Department & Specialty stores in the US and abroad at stores including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor, Rustan’s (in the Philippines), and Tootsies in Texas, as well as the Josie Natori boutique on 253 Elizabeth Street in Manhattan.
A huge congratulations to my fabulous mother-in-law, and her amazing team. I am forever impressed and in awe of all that she accomplishes and does. What a beautiful collection and presentation — thank you for allowing me to be a part of it all! I can’t wait to wear it all! To see more pictures, go here and here.
