In 1974 the Elie Tahari label was launched. Founder Elie Tahari, an Israeli-born orphan, had previously worked at a boutique in Greenwich Village before pursuing his dream to open his own store. Now the label's flagship stands in New York's Soho and the brand is well known for producing premium ready-to-wear for both men and women. Look to the Elie Tahari label for accessories and footwear too. The offering faux snake print slip-on trainers to metallic sheen high-tops is a refined take on casual.
