Summary: While many are doing a throwback to the the '60, Elie Tahari has taken a different approach for his Spring/Summer 2011 collection and focused more on the classic 1970's American sportswear. The clean and feminine silhouettes would make one think of the ideal sophisticated, refined and glamourous woman. The 1970's glamour for the modern 2010 woman. 


Accessories were a huge part of this year's show, helping bring focus to small textures, such as woven straw and canvas handbags. Gold accents also helps bring a bit playfulness throughout each ensemble.
