TICKET TO THE TENTS: Tadashi Shoji Fall 2013 Collection

Friday, February 08, 2013

Fashion week kicked off with a bang yesterday showing collections from Nicholas K, BCBG MazAzria, Tadashi Shoji, & many more. My favorite collection from Day One of New York Fashion Week was that presented by Tadashi Shoji.  I just feel in love with EVERY garment that came down the runway.  I mean look at them? How can you not love them. I want to own them all, even though I'd have no place to wear them! Haha.  Tadashi's show displayed vibrant hues of blue and red.  The silhouettes for the garments were great, very flattering, fit at all the right places.   Even though the models were fairly covered up in these garments, the looks were still sexy, might have been their cool sexy, side swept ponytail braids.   I especially enjoyed the pieces with sheer overlays.  Tadashi used lace, silk & velvet  in his garments.  His designs take us to another era of glamour, one that we don't mind bringing into the modern age.

Cherise Luter from JaxonEP and FashionMingle.net, provides this excellent summary of Tadashi's Show yesterday:

Elegant is all that can be said after any Tadashi Shoji collection. In the fashion world, high drama is king, but there is something to be said about quiet glamour and that is exactly what this collection presented. Now, the collection was not boring, but full of power packed jolts of color – cobalt blue, bright red, and WHITE white - and luxe fabrics. But even in all its power, it still was so…elegant.

The designer used traditional country garb as a starting point for his vision. The volume of the jackets and dresses were a reference to Russian Orthodox priest’s robing. The unrestricting 1920’s-esqe silhouettes, most likely as a precursor to The Great Gatsby trend many have been predicting since the upcoming film was announced, were modernized with the wind swept side ponytails and dramatic burgundy lip. The collection was not much of a departure or surprise from the seasoned designer, but instead another reminder of why we love his work.
