New York Fashion Week has returned with socially distancing and digital shows. On the first day, Tadashi Shoji has shown to us a positive message, a beautiful fashion tale about rebirth.
On the cusp of Spring is the promise of rebirth- and, not a moment too soon. While Our world grew heavy with hardship, our future grew grim and bleak. But Spring brings new beginnings Winter doesn’t last forever, she reminds us. There are flowers in the snowmelt, there is sunshine after the storm, The Spring 2021 collection is inspired by rebirth, for after a season of darkness, life blossoms once again.
There is reason to celebrate, in the birdsong, in the sweet scent of orange blossom, in the dancing prisms when the sun shines houghs a window. These things. observed in an unhurried pace, inspire us to appreciate the detail, the particular, the sometimes unseen, but always felt. It’s the subtlety of cut, or the inner lining tailored to fit. Not to be overlooked are the gifts she shares with all -a single flower’s beauty, a tree laden with fruit, hope for the future warmth from the cold. For before here was Winter, but now there is Spring.
Her understory palette is lush and bright and shimmering as if fed by fog and mist and sunlight itself. But Spring is not a pushover. She is powerful and strong. Watch her strech the daylight or make waterfalls swell.
The whole collection is a love letter to Mother Nature. Mesmerizing flower prints, detailed laces, and beautiful colors. We can see the influence of the 70’s and 80’s high-fashion styles.
Let’s celebrate Spring with Tadashi Shoji’s collection!
