Darlings, let’s all jet off to Morocco today. Right now. We can sell Saffy into slavery and pass out for three days after sampling the local greenery. Doesn’t that sound so much better than whatever you had planned? Elie Tahari got it right when he took the Marrakech Express as inspiration for this collection of turbans and caftans rendered in cream, beige, mustard and pink tones. Too often when a designer says they were inspired by Morocco you’re likely to be subjected to some overdone attempts at literalness and clothes that look more like costumes. Not so, here. This collection is chic, modern, and gorgeously relaxed; clothes for lounging on pillows looking fabulous. It evokes Morocco without trying to be Morocco and that makes all the difference in the world. And haven’t we been telling you all to practice your turban-wearing skills? It’s going to become a thing, we’re telling you. It’s our goal to have you all looking like Lana Turner or Leontyne Price some day.
