Here’s something else we can look out for early 2015: Elie Tahari is launching Elie Tahari Sports. Starting Spring 2015 we’ll be able to “dress down” in E.T.’s clothes in 25 styles, including jackets, tops and hoodies with bonded mesh trim, 3D fabrics, cashmere fleece and pleated terry in a restrained color palette. According to Elie women are busier than ever and people are trading in their jeans for leggings. It’s true, active wear has never been this popular – remember Alexander Wang x H&M and Beyoncé x Topshop. The goal for this new direction is to have a collection filled with sporty, comfortable and urban basics priced from $68 – $350. Elie Tahari Sports will have its own logo, hangtag and will be marketed separately from his eponymous brand. Starting January 5 2015 you can pre-order on elietahari.com & early 2015 it will hit Elie Tahari, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus’ stores.
