A Venetian Summer Escape At Tadashi Shoji

By Robyn Roberts

September 5, 2014

Notably recognized by his soft, lace embellished gowns that drape rather effortlessly and tend to glide down a red carpet or stark runway, Tadashi Shoji delivers the same subtle, yet striking appeal of elegant womenswear for another season. Starting strong at the beginning of New York Fashion Week’s spring/summer 2015 shows, Shoji transports us to gothic-era Venice, for a sunset walk amongst the cobblestone streets. As the soft light radiates the Italian architecture and blue-green waters against stone, soft pastels saturate the scenery amongst a golden sky, capturing a watercolor-worthy moment in time.

While the aforementioned silhouettes are trademarks of Shoji, the designer adds touches of surprise to each piece. Floor sweeping capes in rich gold and creamy white are attached to long gowns, while multi-colored jeweled embellishments, inspired by Millefiori glass, offer a pleasant twist to bodices and sleeves. Dresses are both structured and airy, having been cut from bonded spacer mesh. Tadashi Shoji adds lovely ensembles for women that have a classic, sweet style, that garner approving nods of admiration from both men and women upon entering a room.
