Tadashi Shoji looked back to his childhood for inspiration. The memory of his mother hand-sewing kimonos, the patchwork gardens of peonies, the Sashiko patterns of decorative stitching — all personal memories that he drew upon for resort. Working in the color scheme of blues and white, Shoji showed delicate collage lace dresses, a basket weave jacquard frock with lace insets and a lace bomber jacket paired with a long transparent skirt. All of these looks were a fresh and young approach to evening.
Shoji also showed off his sporty side with lace T-shirts, a Neoprene jacket and slouchy trousers. You can see Shoji is clearly going after a younger customer, but just how young? Let’s just say he launched children’s dresses as well that are mini replicas of his ready-to-wear collections.
