“There are flowers in the snowmelt; there is sunshine after the storm.”
There is hope that the cold season will be over and the difficult times will pass as “Winter does not last forever”. Tadashi Shoji’s Spring 2021 collection is what we all long for: A rebirth, with new beginnings after a dark season. Tadashi Shoji uses many metaphors to describe what he has been missing over the past months. He finally wants to celebrate again, leave the dark behind and experience with his senses what he misses, like birdsong or the sweet smell of flowers.
This anticipation and hope for change is also visible in his new collection. With a focus on the special and a love of detail that shows us that even small things can make a big difference. “For before there was Winter, but now there is Spring.”
Even though spring is beautiful, the strength and power of the season should not be underestimated: There is life in spring. That is precisely why we need this time. After months of listlessness this dream is hopefully soon to come true and our lives will once again blossom like the flowers in spring.
