Tory Burch Spring 2019 - Runway Review
September 7, 2018
No one knows how to translate travels quite like Tory Burch. For Spring 2019, the designer celebrated the well-traveled life of her mother, Reva Robinson -- live lemon trees and all. Set in the garden of the Cooper Hewitt Museum, the collection's casual style reflected the adventurous travels her parents embarked on, in particular their cruise ship trips from Italy and Greece to Morocco and Spain. The joys of vacation life came through in the bevy of warm-weather wardrobe pieces delivered with polish: lovely shirt dresses, breezy tunics, trench coats, scarf-print separates, safari suiting and billowy dresses. Comfortable yet chic.
Accessories played a sizable role this season, including punchy straw bucket hats, striped blanket scarves and beachy totes... with all of the looks paired with canvas sneakers. They looked as fabulous worn with cotton striped boho dresses as with a crisp white shirt and skirt inset with green macrame with the words "humor" and "intelligence" spelled out. The palette remained mostly neutral, save for the occasional brightly colored strips inset in poplins, but that didn't stop a white midi with crisscross collar band worn over a pleated skirt from looking plenty pretty.
