These days, one of the most referenced eras are the 1970s. But while most go for the kitschy vintage or disco look of the decade, Elie Tahari was inspired by the power women who dominated that time, the likes of Bianca Jagger, Marisa Berenson, and Lauren Bacall. In his Fall 2019 show in New York Fashion Week, these women’s sharply tailored styles were given a modern edge. For one thing, the tailoring here was softer, allowing women free agency to move about as she pleases. The glamorous animalistic aspects—namely leopard print and reptile-skin leathers—were subtler this time around as well. Still, no one can deny the chicness of this offering. The looks had a certain refinement to them that was both classic and contemporary at the same time—one of Tahari’s inexplicable skills in design. And for The pièce de résistance, 70s supermodel icon Christie Brinkley makes a special runway appearance, making a memorable fashion moment that will be talked about all year long!
