When & where: Tuesday, February 14 at 2 p.m., Rubin Museum
Runway recap: When I think of Josie Natori, I think of lingerie. So this show took me by surprise and made me respect her versatility. Natori states that her fall collection was inspired by the nomadic culture and colors of Mongolia. Nomads seem to be trending for Fall 2012 (see Katie Gallagher)! The models are styled with dark lipstick and modern geisha-like hairdos. Colors are predominantly black, beige and grey with the occasional red, purple and deep yellow. Using silk, furs and velvets, she contradicts the nomadic theme with a sense of carefree luxury.Bonus points: This show was unique in that it was practically on infinite loop. Natori had her models drift down the spiral staircase of the Rubin Museum then ride up the elevator to come back down again.
