Elie Tahari: Creating Not-So-Basic Basics

Elie Tahari in his lab_1

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. First off, the Israeli designer will debut his own eyewear collection he had been thinking about long before. 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.

Now when Elie Tahari has a variety of offerings for men it’s hard to believe that Tahari men’s collection was launched in 2006 only forty years ago. In deed, while the designer took pains thinking over the slightest detail of ladies attire, he didn’t notice men around till 2006. At least till that time he succeeded to find the outerwear to meet his needs, but that very year he couldn’t find the coat he was looking for. This was a nice push for creating men’s line of clothing. The idea was to make a kind on sportswear with elegant tailoring, something like not-so-basic basics, you see. Elegant sophistication is what Elie Tahari offers both for men and women since the first pay as much attention to the detailing in their clothes as the second.

Pops of color is what Elie Tahari likes most of all. This is an unspoken idea seen in his own style. Have you noticed those layers of clothing Elie Tahari used to wear? He likes layers. While the color palette of shirt, sweater or jacket is usually muted, the T-shirt is a bright accent there! Orange, bright blue, yellow and many more T-shirts Tahari has in his arsenal. His love towards this type of an outfit inspired him to create his own collection of T-shirts for T-shirt lovers. The launch of his T-shirt collection that can boast a variety of colors and styles is planned for fall 2013.

Right after that he is ready to present his capsule collection of lady’s clothing for spring 2014. The greatest hits from Elie Tahari come back! Well, Elie Tahari does possess an inexhaustible source of inspiration for designing great out-of-time styles for another forty years to come.
