Inside Elie Tahari

23rd February, 2012

This season, Elie Tahari eschewed a traditional runway show in favor of a presentation that felt more like a party. Instead of standing statically, the models milled about in color-coordinated clusters, allowing the audience to fully appreciate the rich color stories that comprised the collection.

Tahari‘s gorgeous gaggle of girls ~ wearing royal blues, wine-soaked reds and plush purples ~ chatted amiably, traded outerwear (giving us a peek at all the lovely layers below), cooed over the beautiful baby (who was actually playing model for the day!), and generally looked to be having a grand time in the designer’s super-covetable, wear-everyday duds.

True to form, I instagrammed the whole thing ~ then pinned a few of my favorite images on Elie Tahari‘s board. And I wore Tahari, but of course!
