FW14: Tadashi Shoji Paints a Picture of Morocco and Moorish Palaces

Finding himself lost in an evening reverie, wandering a moonlit Moorish Palace, the expansive halls embedded with tales of enchantment, Tadashi Shoji used the East as his FW14 inspiration.

Ornate architectural details, luxuriant textiles, and palatial soundscapes are intimately linked to the mystery and romance of yesteryear.

An elegant balance between antiquity and modernity, Shoji’s collection was designed for his au courant woman.

Exquisite textures of laser-cut micro suede, velvet-cut paillettes, and shimmering diamantés are paired with effortless silhouettes.

Dimensional crewel embroidery and corded embroidery on tulle are influenced by motifs found in Moorish architecture.

Bright, saturated colors lend themselves to the colored glazes of intricate tilework.

As stars shine in the black of night, they compass glittering road maps to the desert sky, inspiring women who entice mystery and romance, reminiscent of an enchanting Moorish night.
