Inside Natori: Talia, Josie Designer

Over here at the Josie Girl Blog, we thought it would be fun to have employees from The Natori Company share how they incorporate the House of Natori into their every day wardrobes. So first up is the super cool, super young, super HIP designer of the contemporary Josie collection, Talia. She has been with Natori for a couple of years, and has brought a great new energy and direction to Josie, under the tutelage of my mother in law Josie Natori. So here she is… thank you, Talia!



Hi Everyone! This is Talia (the Josie designer) taking over for the Josie Girl! This past weekend I enjoyed some much needed time in the ‘country’ with my husband, sister, and brother in law. We rented the cutest little cottage in Barryville, New York- just a short 2 hour drive from the city. The cottage was surrounded by lush greenery, fresh air and best of all decorated with an eclectic charm!

My sister and I decided the weekend would be all about R&R which made packing super easy. What I love most about leaving the city is having the option to walk outdoors and drink a cup of coffee – I just love the fresh, clean air first thing in the morning!

In the picture above, I am wearing the boheme sleepshirt,  It’s perfectly lightweight, flattering silhouette and the colors are fantastic! The design is hand rendered from a vintage suzani found in the Natori archives.

I was wearing this wrap over my bathing suit and decided to take a quick photo – Shout out to my sisters C’est La Vie sunhat- so fun!


Highlight of the weekend was my sister and I matching in the Josie ruffled top/short set. The feminine ruffles are really fun and I can’t even begin to describe the fabric- SO soft, SO cozy, SO effortless!!

Summers coming to an end but I will definitely be wearing these styles through the Fall/Winter seasons … Cant wait to share more of my favorite Josie pieces with you soon – Talia



Thank you so much, Talia! I can’t wait to see how other employees at Natori incorporate the brand into their wardrobe and lifestyle. I hope everyone has a great weekend and soaks up the last minutes of SUMMER.
