Mr. Shoji does it again. Known for his use of rich colors and lace elements, he seems to have turned the dials up to eleven on both with this collection. Taking the lace motif a step further than anyone had a right to expect, he offered up gorgeous laser-cut microsuede dresses with Moorish influences that simply reeked of luxury chic. In addition, there were beautiful infusions of velvet throughout, giving the entire collection a richness beyond what we normally expect from him. And in a development that will make a lot of our readers happy, every single lace or sheer dress went down that runway fully lined. It was actually kind of refreshing – and it perfectly demonstrated that a well-made lining is a technical and aesthetic achievement on its own.
