To last for 35 years and maintain a global cult following is truly a remarkable feat for any designer, and our country’s very own Josie Natori did just that with her signature East meets West sensibility. So to celebrate her label’s 35th anniversary, the designer went a notch higher with her Natori Ready-to-Wear Fall 2012 collection that featured plush lingerie, kimono-style blousons, and sexy dresses in opulent hues and rich textures.
For something more casual, the Josie label offers standout ensembles perfect for the younger set. This particular collection took a decidedly Japanese turn this season by focusing on traditional imperial motifs of the East—dragons, butterflies, and cherry blossoms—and transforming them into digital prints in explosive neons.
Natori and JOSIE are both exclusively available at Rustan’s Makati and Shangri-La Plaza.
