Ok, chicettes, I absolutely squealed with delight when my Tory Burch invite showed up for the viewing of her fall collection. I mean, did you see her on Project Runway as a guest judge this past week – she’s brill! She has that “chicest girl on the block” look; it’s classic American-girl meets the Hamptons and this collection had a few surprises (like the pants shown here!). I was thrilled correspondent D. was able to cover for us – here are the deets!
For her fall 2010 collection, Tory Burch was influenced by the idea of a gallery-hopping, downtown girl and the color palettes of Gerhard Richter and Picasso’s Mosqueteros exhibit that showed at the Gagosian last year, and designed with the image in mind of “a girl in a gallery, any gallery, anywhere in the world.” Fabrics were fur, tweed, cashmere, wool, leather and metallic. There were slouchy bags, chic outerwear, and questionable high-heeled construction boots (circa J-Lo era?). I have to be honest, I’m not a huge Tory fan….but this collection was an edgier, tougher version of the Burch I know and there were a few pieces that I could get behind and might actually wear– there was a KILLER pair of paint-splattered pants that I need to own immediately, and crimson fingerless gloves added just the right amount of toughness to the looks.
