NEW YORK — Nearly 18 months into their investment in Catherine Malandrino’s company, Elie Tahari and Arthur S. Levine were busy last week helping the designer talk up her new diffusion collection.
This fall’s debut at retail of the Catherine Catherine Malandrino label is the first major move by the trio since they joined forces. The line will be unveiled this week at WWD Magic in Las Vegas. During a preview of the designer’s most affordable looks to date, their outlook was a united one, with each giving the others ample time to express their thoughts without jumping in. “As you can see, this is a real admiration society,” Levine said.
