Tadashi Shoji FW22 – New York Fashion Week
Inspired by boundless expression, Tadashi Shoji presented a collection at the New York Fashion Week digital program, that celebrates a fluidity of style, occasion, and presentation. Pieces include a tuxedo-style coat dress, a lace patchwork illusion gown, and a pearl dotted chiffon trapeze dress.
Menswear-inspired textiles are glamorized, from pinstripe-inspired diamanté on stretch velvet to chevron jacquard suiting.
Draping is ultra-feminized in bombshell cuts where piecework overlaps and wraps to create skin-revealing slits. Fall 2022 is inspired by boundless expression. The fashion house celebrates a fluidity of style, occasion and, presentation because the spectrum is full color, and dresses are brimming with excitement, irresistibility, and fun. The palette is saturated, bold, and embellished, while the texture is indulgent.
The season’s evening arsenal conveys a joy for craftsmanship from paillette-dusted corded embroideries and lace patchwork to smocked tulle and pearl-dotted chiffon. This season, glam up. Tease the typecast and outfit how you envision it. Wear gowns to feel good because confidence is beautiful and confident beauty is radiant. Remain exquisitely you. Be from your own future.
Fall 2022’s message encourages us to free ourselves from fashion’s implicit rules: “This season, glam up. Tease the typecast and outfit how you envision it. Wear gowns to feel good because confidence is beautiful and confident beauty is radiant. Remain exquisitely you.” –Tadashi Shoji
Photographer Andrew Lee lensed the collection, and cinematographer Germano Assuncao filmed the digital presentation. Models Isabella Attolini and Josie Chey move through scenes in glamourous occasion looks that are saturated, bold, and embellished. Hair and makeup artist, Patrick Santa Ana, paired big teased curls and slicked-back wet hairstyles with a dramatic smoky eye.
