It’s no secret that Tory Burch’s namesake collection is always inspired by what’s missing in her own closet. Her uptown appeal has captured the interest of shoppers worldwide and they clamor for her logo emblazoned accessories and simply styled ready-to-wear looks. For Fall, the designer reflected the 70s trends we saw last season while integrating a few of this season’s most prevalent, so far. The presentation was a hybrid of the installation format we’ve seem more and more of in the past few seasons and a standard runway show as the girls stood still before making their standard walk.
If there was any doubt that hemlines for day would drop below the knee, this collection has swept them away. Where Tory Burch is stepping apart from the pack of conformist ready-to-wear designers is with her prints with warm autumnal colors were masterfully paired with retro cuts that both flatter the body and subscribe to this season’s trends.
Pleats, high necklines, and slouchy wide trousers gave this collection a very grown-up schoolgirl appeal that resulted in casual separates that could be easily integrated into every woman’s fall wardrobe.
