Sometimes the inspiration you're searching for has been right in front of you all along. Such was the case this season for Elie Tahari, who rediscovered a series of photos of Eero Saarinen's TWA Terminal that had been hanging in his office for years. The structure of the once-futuristic flight center provided the blueprint for Tahari's Resort outing, which focused on both linear and curved silhouettes executed in a predominantly black-and-white palette. There were flattering fit-and-flare frocks cut from either lightweight crepe or ultra-thin leather (the latter style had a cool floating seam detail at the hemline), as well as slim stretch jacquard trousers. Layered chiffon tanks and shirtdresses showed off the contour of the body, and a cocoon-shaped jacket with adjustable zippers on each sleeve also added dimensionality to the lineup.

Fashion has been on a graphic black-and-white kick for a couple of seasons now, so it was the few pops of color among the office-appropriate staples that felt freshest here. The collection could've benefited from more pieces like the easy silk shift featuring a zesty lime laser-light motif or a cherry-jam-hued biker jacket (which unfortunately didn't make it into the lookbook).
