Joining fans for his inaugural Spring 2014 eyewear launch is designer Elie Tahari. Models posed in Elie Tahari sunglasses as patrons previewed the collection and quickly made a beeline to take a selfie with Tahari. Clients trying Elie’s Ready-To-Wear collection received a one-on-one styling consultation with the famed designer.
Delightedly Elie Tahari shares with Jesenia’s Goodie Bag the inspiration behind his eyewear collection, “Lightening” he says, explaining the magical moment when lightening peers through the infinite darkness with an exploding electric current that illuminates the night’s sky.
12 sunglasses in all, in retro, cat eye, butterfly, over-sized and aviator styles, with catchy names like Camilla, Cara, Courtney, Dasha, Ilana, Joey, Julia, Kimmy, Laura, Lola, Melanie and Twiggy, and uniquely chosen color descriptions in Mocha, Oyster Grey and Tobacco, along with more traditional ones in Tortoise, Leopard and Pink Frost. The classic staple collection was nostalgically Old Hollywood, yet perfectly modernized.
