TADASHI SHOJI Spring 2015, intricate detailing is paired with playful transparencies. Insets of chain mesh on tulle ornament the  bodices and sleeves & multi-colored jeweled embellishments are inspired by Millefiori glass. Sheer mesh necklines  give the illusion of floating dresses. Softly sculpted silhouettes are introduced with unexpected twists. Floor-length  gowns are constructed with capes attached. Dresses, cut from bonded spacer mesh, are both structured and airy.     

The colors of the city inspire the palette. Glowing pastels of frosted jade, pink shadow, and blue stone are built up in  translucent layers, while the brilliant ultramarine blues of Venetian lagoons are paired with ivory and navy. Fabrics  are custom-designed. Motif-embroidered tulles are inspired by Gothic architectural details of the Ca’ d’Oro. Floral  motif lace is hand-tinted by bonding chiffon pieces to the back of lace.
