Elie Tahari is celebrating forty years at the helm of his eponymous label, and he's clearly gunning for forty more. Spring was about the future, with Tahari incorporating high-tech materials into his designs and injecting everything with a sporty, modern ease. The seams on the menswear were closed with silicone tape, and laser-cut perforations abounded on the women's looks. Of course, you have to look back to look forward, so Tahari updated a few of his iconic silhouettes—a swing coat, a jumpsuit—and peppered those pieces throughout the collection. Those Edition 1974 items weren't very different from the current offerings—an indication, perhaps, of a strong Tahari DNA—and everything, in both men's and womenswear, shared a casual, relaxed, unstructured vibe. One exception was a pair of zip-front, curve-clinging leather dresses in one of the collection's sole prints and pops of color, a tropical floral mélange and bright turquoise, respectively. They felt like an unnecessary departure from the chill vibe and winning palette of cool blues, black, and pale, icy neutrals that Tahari had established. Fabrics were mixed to good effect: A long sheer blouse in the faintest hint of blue looked great layered under a perforated white leather jacket and paired with white jacquard shorts. That look had just as much sex appeal as the zipper dresses and felt like a future classic, to boot.
