“From Lee Radziwill’s effortless style to a field of carnations inspired by the drama of Pina Bausch’s Nelken… Romanticism defines the Fall/Winter 2018 mood,” said Tory Burch. “Feminine layers mixed with classic tailoring, a modern take on chintz, and contrasts of texture and print. Accessories carry these ideas through in leather bags and pointy-toe shoes.”
Silhouettes: Relaxed, yet refined with feminine details. Loose, fluid dresses with scarf hemlines balance tomboy jackets and trim blazers. Layered outerwear — from a classic peacoat to a blanket poncho — adds to the effortless vibe.
Palette: The palette balances ivory, pale pink and red with leaf green, deep burgundy and the brand’s signature Tory Navy.
Prints & Patterns: An eclectic mix speaks to the brand’s bohemian spirit. A modern take on chintz is interpreted in several colorways, and anchors a patchwork of florals set against stripes and classic checks
Fabrications: The drama is in the details with new fabrications, finishes and textures. Soft, relaxed fabrics — ranging from delicate lace and organza to wool and cashmere— against a structured poplin, cotton chino and a bonded wool satin. Cascading ruffles are finished with an organza edge and a floral is interpreted as a velvet burnout, while top-stitch details on poplin and snap closures bring a sporty element.
Accessories: Accessories are pared back and refined, putting the focus on natural, effortless style. A handbag, named after Lee, in different fabrications and pointy-toe booties have clean, modern lines, while wishbone rings and a delicate medallion pendant necklace reference good luck talismans.
