Tory Burch - Collection Spring/Summer 2015 New York

Like the fellow compatriots Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch showed an elegant and easy to wear wardrobe with her mix of materials. The fair isle jumper was finished with fringing, and the raffia tweed and stitching gave new textures. The designer also added an arty and graphic edge inspired by Francoise Gilot and Picasso, all combined perfectly with a white shirt or jacket.Interview: Tory Burch: I’ve always myself towards cleaner lines and more classic silhouettes so for me fabric is super important and just the idea of textures and things that look more weighty than they are, because I like really lightweight fabrics. So how do you make a tweed lightweight? How do you take raffia and combine it with different textures, and re-weave things to see how they drape? It’s really a fun exploration. We were inspired by the pottery that Françoise Gilot was living with Picasso in Vallauris and was sort of the graphic details of that and brown off of white and blues, so to me it’s very graphic but then we tried to make it a little more soft.Music from the show.
