“It’s a futuristic nomad crossing the desert, very feminine,” said Elie Tahari at his spring presentation. The designer has been consistently refining his collection and adapting to the ever-changing fashion climate — often quite assertively.
For spring, he opted to explore the future vs. natural dichotomy, expressing it through the juxtaposition of raw and soft. The best examples: an embellished chiffon sand-colored top with an asymmetric, textured linen skirt and an indigo chiffon maxidress paired with a tie-dye denim jacket.
But it was the femininity factor that Tahari was so excited about — and which came through most successfully — in white, geometric-lace parkas; white-lace jackets with floral embroideries, and sheer chiffon maxidresses.
