rediscovered a series of photos of Eero Saarinen’s TWA Terminal that had
been hanging in his office for years. The structure of the
once-futuristic flight center provided the blueprint for Tahari’s Resort

adjustable zippers on each sleeve also added dimensionality to the

Fashion has been on a graphic black-and-white kick for a couple of
seasons now, so it was the few pops of color among the
office-appropriate staples that felt freshest here. The collection
could’ve benefited from more pieces like the easy silk shift featuring a
zesty lime laser-light motif or a cherry-jam-hued biker jacket (which
unfortunately didn’t make it into the lookbook).
