Forty years is a respectable age for a fashion brand and a milestone to celebrate it in a luxurious way. But shining gloss of superfine fabrics, delicate lace and brilliance of tinsels do not fit Elie Tahari taste and style. He treats luxury this own ‘basic’ way.

I’ve already mentioned that Elie Tahari decided to augment the assortment of products offered alongside the variety of styles. It seems the celebration of 40th anniversary is only the beginning of something great and the whole year is going to be full of pleasant surprises.

Then he promises to introduce men’s capsule collection, that is the best-selling items of all time. Tahari hasn’t omitted legs making them warm and comfortable with his new legwear collection that is to be launched very soon. Inspired by all that Tahari will also make underwear collection for men soon: boxers and brief boxers to men’s choice. (more…)

The festival, which is one of the most major events in the Jewish religious tradition, will last 7 days and will be celebrated at New York’s The Prime at the Bentley kosher restaurant. (more…)
