Elie Tahari RTW Fall 2010 / NYCFW Day-07

Intending to create a wardrobe for the “woman traveling the globe in style,” Tahari pulled together a strong lineup of sportier pieces in a neutral palette that had business class written all over it. To wit: Great jackets in herringbone and wool, some belted and others trimmed in fox; that fur paired with shearling for snug vests and collars, kicking up the luxury a notch. Black and camel suitings were cut narrow on top and looser down below. And instead of too many cocktail numbers, as he has included in seasons past, Tahari wisely offered a range of silk blouses and layered knits with slim skirts, all the better to zip from day to night.

In men’s wear, with a brand new suit licensee, Tahari has a fast-growing men’s business, and this lineup showed it off well. Everything was charcoal or black, sometimes with tonal checks, and in textures that looked soft and expensive. The combinations of tailoring and outerwear came across as urbane and sharp, yet young and easy.
