Unless you’ve been living under a Fashion Week rock, you are totally aware that the 70’s are back. In a major way. Nowhere else was it so apparent (or as playful and fun!) as at Tory Burch. True to her boho/retro M.O., the Spring collection was full of bold colors, longer hemlines, flared pants and bold stripes. The color palette also remained familiar with rich yellow, navy, and Burch’s signature orange.
Standout looks were: a striped suit comprised of a long blazer and skinny, cropped pants; the combination of a Baja hoodie and gold flared trousers; and a delicate tea-length silk dress with coral beading at the neckline that hearkened back to Burch designs of season’s past. The 70’s vibe was present all the way down to the accessories. Models wore ankle strap platforms, clogs and espadrilles, while carrying accessories in bold colors as well as some throwback styles in wicker.
Burch took a new approach with her presentation this year. She first showcased a runway show with an limited group of press and then the models lined up for a stationary presentation that allowed press and buyers to get up close and personal with the product. Whether traipsing down the catwalk or standing still, these looks were totally Tory and totally chic.
