Tory Burch RTW Fall 2012

Her woman continues to be polished, but this season, Burch added an underlying sexiness to the lineup.



It was an amusing theme for the first show on Valentine’s Day: the proper girl who always falls for the bad guy. It proved a sound starting point for Tory Burch’s collection, which the designer delivered with a subtle hand. Her woman continues to be polished, but this season, Burch added an underlying sexiness to the lineup, with body-conscious silhouettes often nipped at the waist — still a little prim, but also seductive. The theme was extended into accessories for framed handbags with plastic floral paillettes and tortoise chains, some which swung a bit Marni. There was plenty of romance, too, i.e., a ruched chiffon dress and a top with an organza appliqué teamed with a tweed skirt. Burch also played with touches of men’s wear, most notably in a houndstooth motif she used for a sequined dress, as well as hand-painted leather jackets and plaid pants. The latter pieces added some edge — a savvy move, considering some people are trying to nip at her ballet flats.
