Label: Todashi Shoji
Season: Spring/Summer 2015
Climbing the social ladder just got a lot easier. Todashi Shoji’s collection is made for royalty; if you wear one of his pieces, you are sure to elevate your status. The collection is demure and sensual at the same time. Achieving the two together can be tricky, but Shoji has masterfully created a collection for the true queens of the world and those aspiring to fashion’s throne.
Pros: The collection is perfect for the woman who keeps her head held high. Sex is not the driving factor of the looks and that is refreshing. A lot of the skirts and dresses are cut right at the knee or floor length. This sometimes can come across as matronly but the combination of sheer, cut outs, and halter-esque peek a boo moments take the looks to sophisticated sexy demure. This collection is perfect for the woman looking for an alternative to trendy and the woman who wants something that will be timeless. My favorite looks were: 17, 22, 33, and 36. These looks visually show what I am describing and the point of view of the entire collection
Cons: These looks can lean very age specific. I can see women in their 30s and up wearing the looks. But the young sophisticated fashionista might find the collection bold enough for her taste since there are a lot of sheer and see through moments. Other than not being a collection for a young girl in her early 20s, there are no other cons. The collection was perfect.
