Occident Meets Orient Natori Spring/Summer 2013 celebrates the fusion of Spanish and Philippine culture.

We're riding the Castilian craze at the moment, so when Filipino designer Josie Natori paid tribute to our country’s Spanish roots in her latest collection featuring cheery prints and delicate embroidery set against her signature silks and jerseys, we couldn't get more stoked. Each Natori piece is a celebration of abundance, where various Hispanic references such as Mantones de Manila and Flores de Mayo were reworked to a contemporary viewpoint. Highlighted by splashes of vivid hues and intricate details, Natori's collection definitely calls for a luxurious summer vacay.
