Tory Burch Fall 2016 – Runway Review
February 16, 2016
On Tuesday morning at Lincoln Center’s David Geffen Hall, Tory Burch delivered a refined take on sportswear that highlighted all the “best-of” moments we’ve come to love from the designer. Riddled with equestrian details, there were, in no particular order, knee-high boots, jodhpurs, jockey silks and color-blocked wool coats. The show cited Éric Rohmer’s 1972 L’Amour l’après-midi, a film about love and infidelity in which shopping for clothes – as a way of exploring personal relationships and the self – is a recurring theme. The Seventies vibe that dominated featured a sentimental luxe bourgeois-meets-New England prep that is quintessential Tory. An oversize diamond motif recurred nicely in the wearable clothes; graphic and color-blocked patterns were splashed across everything from peacoats to eel-skin skirts to white blouses mismatched with color-blocked sleeves.
