Tadashi Shoji S/S 20

Designer Tadashi Shoji Spring/Summer 2020 collection is inspired by “rediscovering heritage.” Titled “Once Upon a Time in … Japan,” the evening dresses, cocktail dresses and evening gowns focused on quiet luxury and cultural richness with a compilation of Japanese symbols and references. 

This season collection showcased gowns that featured lace overlays, obi-inspired knotting, intricate embroideries and swirl prints, romantic flower patterns and embellishments, brocade fabrics, fluid draping, and kimono-style details. Each pieces was inspired by the feeling of enchantment, the essences of cherry blossoms, Japanese gardens and the elegance dressed in a Watteau gown (sack-back gown).

“It’s a collection that plays between residing in fantasy while staying grounded in the real world, with pieces that focus on quiet luxury and cultural richness. Intricacy and refinement cultivate a deeper understanding of past and future, where new perspectives honor tradition and beauty transcends,” the show press release read.

Pieces that stood out this collection was the opening dress of a red and black floor-length gown with a plunging neckline, cap sleeves and bow at the navel, a black kimono floral print crepe asymmetrical draped gown, royal blue one shoulder wave printed drape gown with tulle ruffle, and a black/nude off-the-shoulder gown featuring chrysanthemum paillette embroidered tulle and a tulle overlay skirt.

Once Upon a Time… in Japan, where what if comes true.
