Something for the ladies.
Elie Tahari Resort 2012 collection for the ladies who like simplicity sophistication. Very clean silhouttes, ranges from the maxi dress, off-shoulder frocks, billowy blouses, palazzo pants, luscious overcoats, cutout-sleeves tunics and separates. I love the brilliant use of colors especially white that exudes understated luxury. It's not easy to make white really stand out but these collection seem to be able to do that : richness and chic. There's also a hint of ethnic inspired, like the dark mustard sheer dress with the crochet details that somehow reminds me of Alhambra. And the turbans worn throughout; does it bring you to the old Hollywood glamour, or you're just thinking of the Bay of Bengal?
Looking at this collection, what pops to my mind? Sheikha Mozah, hands down...
