The New York City-based designer is the latest high fashion player to enter the activewear game.
Elie Tahari has announced a new range of sports and leisure wear set to arrive early next year, sold in Elie Tahari boutiques, online and in multibrand stockists including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and Bloomingdales. The 25-piece-strong collection will range from leggings to jackets and tops, priced from $68 to $350.
"I saw active/leisure wear being incorporated into women’s daily attire and wardrobe," explained Tahari, adding, "my goal was to create a sporty, comfortable collection with cool urban basics."
"Today’s women is busier than ever, and Elie Tahari Sport is a continuation of our lifestyle brand offering weekend alternatives to traditional gym wear or jeans."
The debut line will focus on a blend of technical and luxe touches including 3D fabrics, cashmere fleece, bonded mesh and pleated terry, all in a restrained color palette. The collection will be available to preorder online at elietahari.com from January 5 and will ship in late February.
