Tadashi Shoji Premiers Fall 2022 Collection at NYFW
Shoji, known for his impeccable fit, trademark ease, and fresh sense of femininity, shared his vision for Fall 2022.
Inspired by boundless expression, Shoji presents a collection 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’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.
