Tired of neons and tropical prints yet? Elie Tahari
isn't. The commercial designer stuck by those familiar trends with a Spring presentation intended to channel a lively cocktail party at one of Richard Neutra's Palm Spring residences during the 1950s. A signature sheath in laser-cut lace mixed leopard and palm branch motifs, while lime-colored cropped trousers featured an allover python pattern and contrasting fluoro trim. Tahari's favorite moment was an icy blue cocktail dress embellished with glasslike sequins that were slightly singed around the edges. Paired with strappy python high heels, that number was ready for the dance floor, to be sure. However, Tahari's customer primarily turns to the label for polished everyday staples, which were also included here and ultimately made a more favorable impact than the rest of the bright, busy lineup. An effortless navy silk button-up tucked into slim, tonal leather pants was one of the simplest looks, but it was also the freshest.
