Fall 2012: Tadashi Shoji

9 Feb

“The Golden Age of Shanghai” that struck designer Tadashi Shoji so much is one I’m not really too knowledgable on. The Asian influence here was pretty undeniable, but it seemed done in more of a retro, antiquated way than a modern, funky way. The first few were cut at a weird length — dipping down low but not low enough to be long yet not high enough to be that edgy long hippie length… if you follow. An awkward length followed by an awkward draping style that is pulled in yet also drapes out. It was very “Grandmother’s wedding,” not in a funky vintage way too me. There was a sequence with the tulle busting pieces that I quite adored. The way he infused the sheer with florals was gorgeous and very Eastern-inspired to me and was brought modern over the sheer and very Shoji with the glamour and the full length tulle skirt. I wasn’t really a fan of this Shoji collection — it’s clear he’s been experimenting recently, stepping out of the comfort zone but I was feeling Spring’s drop-waist and patterns more than this.
