Tory Burch Fall 2020 - Runway Review
February 10, 2020
Tory Burch has consistently reinforced the notion of female power in her collections -- and for Fall 2020, that included having Grammy-nominated soul performer Alice Smith open and close the show with a special rendition of Lesley Gore's 1963 anthem, "You Don't Own Me," produced and rearranged by Q-Tip. The musician's gusto reverberated loudly (and proudly) through Sotheby's as the models, sporting minimal makeup and fuss-free pulled-back hair, walked with purpose past artist Francesca DiMattio's vibrant and cascading sculptures.
The collection also reflected a new ethos of structure and self-assuredness: masculine lines abound in the structured blazers, sharp suiting and equestrian-style boots rendered in feminine pop colors like bubblegum-pink, creamsicle, aquamarine and festive sequins. Helping to also soften the collection were delicate florals showcased on the aforementioned suits and oversized garden dresses with slouchy boots.
