Tory Burch Spring Summer 2011 Presentation

Tory Burch Spring Summer 2011 Presentation

On September 15 I attended the Tory Burch Spring Summer 2011 presentation at the Lincoln Center during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Tory expertly combined retro references from the sixties and seventies with global influences, modern silhouettes and a vibrant color palette for that one-of-a-kind Tory Burch aesthetic beloved by ladies who power-lunch. One of my favorite looks was a Chanel-inspired tweed jacket paired with chic navy & white Japanese woodblock print shorts and platform sandals, an eclectic mix of textures, patterns and cultural references that just worked. I also loved the leather pencil skirts paired with ladylike blouses and the plethora of unique statement-necklaces. The highlight of the presentation had to be seeing designer Tory Burch herself walking through the collection with Vogue editor Anna Wintour; both women looked beautiful and I was a little giddy after that. Oh yeah, and Kanye West was there too, I snapped a pic of him looking rather serious but he seemed to be having a good time mingling with guests and posing for photogs. See if you can spot him as well as Wintour and Burch below.

I do love Tory Burch, but could she have considered better models. They are so thin, the clothes loop shapeless! Oh well, just another excuse for me to head to our local store and model myself.
