Fall has spread its wings on us now and what we do every day is to run around and try to complete numerous challenges and lists that the newly launched crazy pulse of a work year brings forth for us. Time is literally racing and we need the tic-tac reminder at hand to catch up. Well, we now shall have a perfect “friend” to help us in that: the lovely American fashion designer, businesswoman and philanthropist with several fashion awards under her belt, Tory Burch is launching a fabulous 4-piece watch collection, which will inspire you with the vintage air that it is covered in. We all know how much Tory loves vintage accessories, art and clothing, so there is no doubt that each number is fantastic. Thanks to the perfect non-novice-in-the-business staff like London-based photographer Josh Olins, who quickly proved to be one of the most talented and creative “new-gen” fashion photographers, the 22-year-old Swiss model Tilda Lindstam and the Serbian model Antonina Petkovic, the Tory Burch 2015 watch collection lookbook has been photographed with a stylish ‘60s inspired spirit.
The first number, Amelia, is a golden hexagonal-shaped watch-bracelet that looks fantastic on the hand and with clothing with a reserved, elegant earth-color feel. We appreciate the harmony between the surrounding and the item: it is like an inseparable part of the whole idea with a vintage car, brown-blonde hair of Tilda and the time topic. With a more futuristic-for-the-time idea comes the next picture showing Tilda wearing the round gold watch, The Reva that has a double-T logo dial ornament in the middle and a khaki green lace. This particular number was named after Tory’s mother, which proves its importance in the collection. This particular watch’s design carries the spirit of the Sixties and Seventies style embodied by Reva Robinson, as it is described on their website. Looking at the campaign picture makes me feel like I am watching the famous movie “Back to the Future” of Robert Zemeckis, when you are in “the future”, but with a slight difference – the predictions have come true. You can find Reva watch with multiple case and lace color and design variations, which are all displayed on the brand’s official website.
Embodying similar characters of being part of the past and from future in the past, Antonina feels totally at home: she wears two manly golden watches – one with a rectangular form, another one with a round one. The first one called The Dalloway gorgeously combines the men’s bracelet with feminine faceted links, while the second piece, Tory, has an abundance of design variants with different color backgrounds. Being the epitome of tomboy chic, this design matches classic as well as sporty styles, as the official website describes it. The collection will be available for sale at the beginning of October this year in stores and online with the price tags ranging from $395 to $695.
We have recently learnt that Tory has been enlisted as the 73rd most powerful woman in the world by Forbes. Well, if a sensitive and fragile mind can create a luxurious collection of precious watches, then it definitely has an enormous power!
