At a cocktail party last week in his SoHo boutique, designer Elie Tahari introduced the fashion set to his new Emmy bag, designed in collaboration with actress Emmy Rossum. Available in four different sizes and in materials like natural raffia and soft glove or metallic leather, the bucket-shaped bag is as functional as it is polished, the kind of piece that can be carried everywhere, every day of each season. It has multiple interior and exterior pockets, is lined with soft cotton canvas, and comes in six classic colors: natural, black, white, mushroom, yellow, and washed metallic with yellow contrast stitching. A portion of proceeds will be donated to Safe Horizon, an agency aiding families affected by domestic violence. Tahari has also announced the launch of T Tahari jewelry, a collection of necklaces, bracelets, statement rings, earrings and brooches due out this fall. True to the Tahari way, the pieces will be replete with hues of gold, tassels, black diamond briolette-cut stones and clear crystals. The Emmy bag ranges from $400 to $800 at Tahari, 417 W. Broadway; 212-334-4441; elietahari.com.
