Tory Burch S/S 2020 New York Fashion Week Women’s
Scene setting: The striking Beaux Arts Court of the Brooklyn Museum provided a perfect backdrop to Tory Burch’s latest collection, which found its inspiration in English gardens and the Eighties. The top floor space, which counts a sprawling skylight, a glass tile floor, a majestic brass chandelier and historic archways, was originally completed in 1927, and was drenched in boughs of greenery for the occasion.
Mood board: Burch’s trademark sense of romanticism exhibited itself in crisp white handkerchief motifs, decorated with floral embroidery, balloon-sleeved taffeta tea dresses, tweed jackets and coats, along with floaty silk skirts for added femininity. Structured accessories like angular, oversized totes, ladylike, top-clasped handbags and PVC kept things feeling modern and balanced.
Sound bite: In her own words, Burch explained, ‘For Spring/Summer 2020, I took my cue from Diana Spencer whom I have been fascinated with since I was young. Clearly, she was a style icon, but I loved her fearlessness, her intelligence and, most of all, her humanity. This collection brings together English garden florals, a restrained volume and my own take on the 1980s.’ §
