Tory Burch Raided Her Parents' Armor Collection for Her Fall Show

What, your parents don't have one of those?

For her fall 2014 collection, Tory Burch looked to another collection -- her parents' trove of armor -- for inspiration. (What, your parents don't have one of those?) The result: coats, dresses and separates, mostly in wool and silk brocade, that were woven, quilted and pleated and/or adorned with patterns reminiscent of those found on medieval tapestries.

The Tory Burch woman is a woman who wants to look both rich and elegant, and Burch again delivered many options for her, though the collection wasn't as luxe as the jewel-toned wools, velvets and furs she delivered last fall, or the neat, embroidered silk duponi suits and dresses she showed for spring. Still, there were several pieces to lust after: a texture-blocked wool and tweed coat with a gray fur skirt (see top left); a quilted satin pullover with knit cuffs and shoulders (second from left); a navy sweatshirt embellished with gem-like medallions. In lieu of the many flats Burch showed for spring, heels were in full force at the fall show, paired with chunky, below-the-knee socks braided up the back.
