Tory Burch Fall 2018 - Runway Review

A sea of pink carnations -- 14,000 to be exact -- sent the tone for a Tory Burch show that was at once sophisticated and whimsical. Coupled with a string quartet and a historic Upper East Side venue, and it's no wonder Jackie O's little sister, and style icon, Lee Radziwill was the designer's go-to muse.

As a whole, the collection didn't stray from Burch's brand aesthetic: flattering, tailored midi skirts and blazers, with some flowing chiffon silk dresses peppered throughout, filled the runway. A nifty '70s-inspired floral pattern, called "Happy Times," dominated the runway in five versatile colorways. Romantic? Check. Boho? Check. Feminine? Triple check. 

Yet for as flouncy and frills-friendly as the collection was, it never turned coy, thanks to Burch's deft of design. A host of inviting parkas, including one fleece-lined worn over a long shearling coat, were the definition of practical chic. 

Elements of the sportif were introduced lovingly so: an argyle sweater over floral skirt; crisp cropped jeans under a perfect white shirtdress with ruffled collar and placket outlined in black. There were even moments where Burch indulged her inner tomboy: terrific suede pieces including a solid trench and bomber, the latter worn over a stretch wool skirt.
