Josie Natori continues to explore East-meets-West aesthetic in her pre-Fall season. We see casual dressing with frayed edges and laid-back silhouettes and youthful touch. Designer keeps on experimenting with 3-D appliqués, bringing blown-up circles that are inspired by Istanbul ceramics. Speaking of clothing sets, then we see here fit-and-flare ensembles, feminine men's suiting, boxy jackets, peplum blouses, A-line dresses and handkerchief-hem skirts. Speaking of fabrics, then we see here silks, bonded cotton, jersey and many other luxe updates. I personally think that all the presented clothing sets are ideal for wearing in the streets of a big city. Each look has an emphatic nod to city chic, so that you can easily wear it at work. The fabrics and textures are thoroughly thought through. The shapes of pre-Fall are more flared and lighter.
Here we see a black belted vest that can be styled as a jacket or dress. Try it on with pencil trousers styled with pointed-toe black suede slingback booties I personally love the statement belt metal plaque.
The cropped blazer with wide shortened sleeves looks awesome styled with the following flared black ensemble.
That's an ideal pantsuit for working hours, as well as after-hours wear for cocktail parties and evening meetings. I like the pleated black floor-length trousers and formal black top tied at te waist with a pretty belt with a statement plaque.
The sleeveless ensemble is a perfect choice for those ladies who are in a hurry. Just add a black blazer on and you are ready.
The crewneck tailored coat in a silver metallic circle prints looks awesome worn atop the black dress.
Can't say for sure if it's a long blazer, jacket or a coat. But this wrap belted cover-up looks lightweight and ideal for everyday wear. Try it on with the same color bottoms and black suede booties.
The relaxed fit white shirt in black plaid print looks great with pleated, black loose-fit trousers. Try it on at the office.
The wrap black coat with wide sleeves is worn atop the same color ensemble.
The crewneck fit-and-flare white dress in a black plaid tied at the waist is an ideal piece for wearing at cocktail parties.
Dar red collarless coat with origami sleeves worn atop the same color shift. Try on this outfit with your favorite pointed-toe black booties.
That's what I call beautiful simplicity! Here we see a black dress what can be worn at night parties and formal events.
