Elie Tahari Spring/Summer 2017 RTW Collection – NYFW

Elie Tahari showed a full and well rounded collection of springtime looks that honestly no one was expecting. The entire Elie Tahari spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection actually gives rise to feelings of spring and summer. The collection was full of evening clothes that were beautifully embellished and tailored. According to Tahari, the inspiration for the collection was the atmosphere of St. Tropez during the Sixties and Seventies.

The looks in the Elie Tahari spring 2017 collection included lace, knits and crochets. The fit on the clothes was designed to be loose and comfortable and made out of the materials that are perfect for the transitioning weather and atmosphere of spring.

For a collection of clothes that is certainly designed for an evening out, there is a lot of fun and lightness in the collection to say they can be worn whenever a person is in the mood. The dressy cardigan styled jackets were definitely the most fun and unexpected of the pieces in the line. There were combinations that included these jackets with dresses, pants and skirts, each look enhanced by the jacket rather than covered up. The stylishness of these jackets is no surprise as Elie Tahari has always had breathtaking outerwear options.

One of the jackets was black and completely see-through and embellished with beaded flowers and a lace styled look. It sat on a floral embroidered knee-length dress with a lace hem. The look of the ensemble was youthful and fun. There is a similar version of the black sheer jacket in white, which adorns a classically styled white dress. In another ensemble the jacket is royal blue and set against a baby blue dress with a floor-length sheer maxi skirt.

The feel and design of the Elie Tahari spring 2017 collection was fun and intricate, but attention to detail is a gift of Elie Tahari that is well utilized. Within the collection there are unexpected pleats and lace, tulle, and light colors, which were melded together beautifully to enhance the other elements.

According to Elie Tahiri the collection was done with the intention to fill a need that his retailers brought to his attention. Tahiri stated: “I find there’s a real shortage of available evening tops,” and he clearly set out to fill this need and did so in an elegant and alluring way.
