Elie Tahari has taken the plunge for its men’s collection, showing it independently for the first time.
The fall line paid homage to vintage military blankets, using contrasting elements on everything from vests and sport shirts to slacks. The palette was subdued, with charcoal, black and tobacco the overriding colors of the season.
Military references were also seen in coats which boasted contrasting piping, dress shirts with blanket details on the selvage, and sweaters with engineered stripes. The collection also featured laser-perforated cotton shirts, cashmere sweaters with leather piping, jackets with silver zippers and sweaters with a distressed feel. Leather coats sported utilitarian details; there was a cashmere wool coat with detachable lining and a shearling bomber with wool melton sleeves.
The stand-alone presentation also featured a capsule collection of black outfits, including an unlined suede blazer, a cotton cashmere coat with leather arms and elbow patches and a shearling with sueded cotton accents.
Suit separates were offered in two jacket styles: soft shoulder and classic peak lapel.
