Military was the starting point for Tory Burch this season but her pairings weren’t rendered literally. She combined sharply cut pieces with bohemian elements and lots of great knits for a winning mix. A wool officer’s coat, for example, was worn over a caviar beaded silk top and skirt. Burch didn’t forget her affinity for glitz, this time demonstrating it with a more natural touch via tiny wooden beads for stripes on a sailor T-shirt, or a panel of raffia at the hem of a midi skirt. There was some serious costume jewelry, too, that she said will become more of a focus moving forward.
Burch also talked a lot about knit dressing, showing several unique examples: a Lurex jacquard was done in a chevron print and a cotton yarn was wax coated. Burch’s basics were still there in varying weights to satisfy her increasingly global business.
