After years of giving presentations instead of runway shows (which we can attest were swarmed, crowded, dizzying affairs), Tory Burch celebrated her first runway show ever yesterday, in a sun-drenched room at Alice Tully Hall. Top-tier models–Arizona Muse, Lindsey Wixson, Fei Fei, Liu Wen–strolled the runway muliple times.
Those who love the brand and that uber-recognizable stacked “T” logo will be thrilled with this latest collection. Having a 20s flapper vibe, complete with fringed raffia (which adorned dresses and bags) and drop-waist dresses, the whole collection gave off an easy Great Gatsby vibe.
Dresses–tiered and lightly ruffled–featured dot prints and stripes. Wavy striped sequin dresses were cut loosely, giving the message, “Wear me with flip-flops!” Tory even tiptoed into evening wear, offering a few long chiffon gowns, easily at home at both a Hamptons barbecue or a charity dinner.
With her new NYC flagship and a perfume deal in the works, Tory’s ladies are taking over the world, one colorful look at a time.
