Spring 2014 Fashion Month is underway! First up for the season is Josie Natori with a collection that effortlessly and artfully blends 1930′s glam with East Asian details. The longstanding brand’s first runway show keeps the silhouettes simple, chic, and functional, letting color, statement jewelry, and texture play centerstage.
Though taking inspiration from a past era, the designs are thoroughly modern: working for everyone from the sophisticated career girl to the luncheon-going socialite. High-waist pencil skirts, swing coats, classic blazers, and roomy trousers anchor the collection in undeniable wearability.
The East Asian influence can be felt in kimono-inspired jackets, obi belts, and wood-handle clutches.
Print bursts through in neutral-base ikats and abstract watercolor patterns.
The jewelry pieces are among my favorite things in the collection: big and unapologetic and truly statement-making when paired with the assortment’s brights.
