Tory Burch loves to get her groove on. The designer continued withlast season’s Seventies spotlight, but took things for a new spin bycrossing over to the U.K. “It’s English countryside meets Americansportswear,” noted Burch, who also folded in a major patchwork motif.Despite fashion’s exhaustive riffs on the decade, hers was asurprisingly and delightfully fresh take. There was something cozy aboutit all, the way Burch took thick nubby tweeds and cut them intojackets, shifts and fur-collared coats — some with raw, fringed edges —and spliced together tartan patterns in kilt skirts and aleather-trimmed shirt with Mongolian fur sleeves. The bow blouses wereparticularly charming, not to mention those great wide-leg palazzo pantswith pleats up the sides. Burch upped her offerings of nighttimeglamour with crystal embroidery and spangly paillettes on tunics andtops. And in order to even the score for those pants she used lastseason from her father’s closet, this time she looked to her mom’s oldYves Saint Laurent suit for the basis of her red velvet smoking.
