Starting your day off with a 9 am Tory Burch show is very calming. Also, it usually makes you want to go somewhere on vacation.
This year's destination was the French Riviera, circa the late 1960s. Burch was inspired by Romy Schneider in La Piscine, and the vibe was very apparent. The swimwear was tasteful, and I was really into the bikini worn with a thin cardigan over it. Much better than hiding under an old t-shirt of your husband's, which I sometimes do.
The palette was muted, with a dusty olive color taking center stage. Prints had a botanical vibe--dresses and separates were printed with dainty sprays of flowers. There was also a white lattice element, which was particularly striking in leather in an easy a-line tunic shape. Designers are definitely getting more creative with leather for spring, and this was spot-on. The final looks, which showcased Burch's particular style of casual eveningwear, were spangled with large geometric shapes.
Burch accessory lovers are going to LOVE her spring offerings. Cute market totes, again done in the lattice design, were fantastic. I loved the pointy toe silver metallic shoes, too, and for the super girly amongst you, the green beaded sandals are definitely statement-making.
