NYFW SS15: Tadashi Shoji

With a palette of glowing pastels and soft silhouettes, Tadashi Shoji whisked his audience away to old Venice for his 2015 Spring/Summer collection.

A warm palette of rose, ivory, periwinkle and jade evoked light dancing on the surface of the Grand Canal and the Ca’ d’Oro. Subtly catching the light as the models sashayed down the runway, shimmering tulle and multi-coloured jewelled embellishments referenced Millefiori glass. Frequent use of chain mesh insets and lace detailing expressed Shoji’s homage to 15th century Venice, underscored by the collection’s consistent use of lace. Standout pieces included a fully embroidered, metallic gold floor length cape and dress, and an ivory cape and gown with sheer panelling at the waist.

Feminine and flattering, Shoji’s collection presented a dreamy, Venetian landscape while staying true to his philosophy of wearable garments and simple forms.
