This season, Elie Tahari weaved embellishments and mixed textures throughout his collection with a liberal hand. It lent each look a sense of occasion, with plenty of party-ready pieces, from a leopard-printed metallic blue jacquard blazer to a flirty LBD decked out with a transparent mesh bodice, floral appliqués and an ostrich feathered skirt. A fun, feminine mood prevailed — underscored by flirty fringed hems and sheer lace embroidery that revealed hints of skin on several of Tahari’s tops, which he paired with fit-and-flare miniskirts in printed lace or laser-cut leather.


Outerwear highlights included a couple of styles in velvet: a patterned, fringed bomber jacket and a dégradé leopard-printed coat.
