The new Spring Summer 2014 collection from Elie Tahari is fantastic! He recently showcased his new designs and they are being sold in Harrods, Harvey Nichols and more! It represents a unique homage to subtle femininity. Court shoes, peep toes and open toe high-heeled sandals are produced with the finest craftsmanship, while flat styles feature two-tone and occasionally three-tone contrasting materials. Open toe court shoes feature bold black patent leather or delicately metallised smooth leather and multi-coloured ballerina shoes have rounded or pointed caps,
or sometimes patent leather caps; underlying the diversity in the available selection.
Now onto the Penny loafers and laced shoes! These come in an exciting mix of materials, always exuding feminine elegance. For the day, sporty luxe styles feature rounder shapes, whilst at night, the elegant high heels come in pointed shapes. The colour spectrum spans from lighter shades such as cream, beige, white, to metallic silver and black, but the main theme is metallic – with a reflective, powdery finish. The lace up brogues below are absolutely incredible! I love them!
I wasn’t all that familiar with Elie Tahari before, so for those of you who also didn’t know much about the designer, here’s a little snippet!
“Clothing should be quieter than the woman… so that her true beauty can shine through”.
The designer, Elie Tahari, who grew up in Israel, is a passionate romanticist – an attitude expressed in all his creations and which is undoubtedly one of the secrets of his unprecedented rise. He wanted to find his luck as an electrician in the seventies in New York, then worked in a boutique in Greenwich Village and found his calling. He was one of the first fashion designers to open a boutique on Madison Avenue in 1974. However, the ladies had to wait for his first shoe collection until 2006, but they forgave him since it was well worth waiting for. His shoes appear light, hovering almost and they bewitch us with finely attuned colours and delicate details.
