With William Eggleston, Alexander Calder, and “the styles of the nerdy schoolgirl, the free-spirit hippie, the cool surfer chick and the girl next door” as inspirations for Tory Burch’s spring lineup, things could easily have become chaotic. Yet the lineup came together beautifully, perhaps because Burch has a keen eye for blending eclecticism with straightforward prep. Leather and denim were worked as trim blazers and button-downs; silk tulip and slim skirts came in sequins or tie-dyed prints. For every supercool piece — see the sleeveless leather vest, a knit-looped gold top — there was a basic, such as lightweight trenches and patterned blouses. Even the shoes had charm: adorable taupe suede moccasins, as flats or pumps.
