Elie Tahari Spring 2013
Elie Tahari said he wanted his Spring 2013 presentation for Elie Tahari to look like "a 1950s cocktail party in a Richard Neutra house in Palm Springs." That meant lots of bright colors like coral, pool blue, and pale green alongside images of tropical flowers and watercolor prints. Among the collection of well-tailored basics, Tahari's use of lace contributed to the most compelling pieces. A black floral version was laid over a sparkly blue A-line cocktail dress with strong pleats, and skirts combined brightly colored lace with contrast neon piping at the hem.
