The delicate Elie Tahari spring/summer collection 2014 represents a unique homage to subtle femininity.
Court shoes, peep and open toe high-heeled sandals are produced with the finest craftsmanship.
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; multi-coloured ballerina shoes have rounded or pointed caps, or sometimes patent leather caps; underlying the diversity in the available selection.
Penny loafers and laced shoes 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.
The main theme is metallic – with a reflective, powdery finish.
The snakeskin leathers lead the collection: featured in court shoes, high less, wedges and flat sandals.
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.
