Elie Tahari fall/winter 2017

Elie Tahari: Forbidden Fruit from the Garden of Eden

Eliza Jordan

24 February 2017

Last week, Elie Tahari’s New York showroom presented its fall/winter 2017 collection with and inspiration taken from the Garden of Eden. Full of sumptuous colors and textures for the modern-day Eve, the season overflowed with blouses, coats, jackets, sweaters, skirts, trousers, vests, and dresses galore—all bearing some type of unexpected treasure. On the collar of one special button-down dress, there were nearly-flat hand-secured polished stones that mimicked the gradient pattern of its geological print. Velvet jackets had varying prints on the inside and the outside, and dresses in the same material of other colors showed sophisticated cutouts to accentuate both a modest and flirtatious look. On a certain black fur coat, touched with a streak of blue leopard print detail, the middles of the arms were held together by large, individual metal circles.

There was a silver, gold, and black dress with stringy long fringe detailing on its front, and a teal car-length coat with hand-stitched detailing of beads and sequins tricking down the back in a succession of flowers. There was a green leather jacket with a fur front, and an entire miniature collection of down jackets in velvets of dark green and three shades of mauve-purple with fur trim around its hood, in two different lengths. On nearly every piece, we saw patterns and careful fabric placement that reflected the image of the Garden of Eden.

Elie Tahari proved with this divine collection that women everywhere can be both elegant and edgy—and that’s biblical enough for us here in New York.
