Designer: Elie Tahari
Inspiration: The "Urban Forest," where women brave the city's harsh winters in an armor of natural materials, like wool, mohair, leather, and suede, served as Tahari's inspiration.
Trends: The focus of the collection was on coats and the pieces that paired well with them: shearling-lined coats over fringed-suede skirts, rounded neoprene jackets, with wool trousers, fur outerwear over slouchy knits, leather jackets with pony-hair pencil skirts, ankle booties, and sleek gloves.
Palette: Brown, grey, black, cream, cobalt blue, charcoal, forest green, midnight blue, army green
Who was there: Susan Sarandon, Carmen Dell'Orefice
Who should wear it: Put-together New York women with an edge.
