Signature caftans and lace embroideries… Tory Burch never disappoints us whenever it comes to her boho-chic signature ensembles, as proven by the latest Tory Burch spring/summer 2017 collection, too.
Unveiled at the New York Fashion Week a few hours ago, the Tory Burch SS 2017 line-up sort of revamps the same motifs she utilized for her Tory Burch spring/summer 2016 collection exactly a year ago. Both the line-ups effortlessly embrace our deepest inner wanderlust, making us feel the urge to just go travelling and explore the world around us.
This time around, however, she focused less on athleisure and more on practical, merely sporty-chic pieces, the materials and lines of which will help anyone, who finds herself lost in the middle of a rainstorm feel, safe and warm.
Fancy raincoats and warmer sweaters are, in fact, at the core of the Tory Burch spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection, and even help infuse the line with what could be regarded as a preppy-meets-boho kind of style. Of course, when fashion is designed by Tory Burch, nothing is left by chance. Although being sporty or purely elegant, they all feature common hippie fil rouge that gives us something familiar to look forward to, whether it is in the designed patterns or little detailing.
As usual, the collection went heavy on boho-chic-inspired patterns, with a strong focus on botanical prints and, surprisingly, geometric patterns. Vichy designs and stripes served us a cutting-edge glamour that, in return, got further enhanced with patterns of vintage boats.
Travel-ready and polished to the highest level Tory Burch has gotten us used to, this collection mixes marine and botanical motifs as if we were on a fancy cruise, often mixing them all together while also playing with contrasting shades. There was an undeniable playfulness with the contrasting hems embellishments, dominated by the primary colors.
The Tory Burch spring/summer 2017 collection also features a chronological motif that was artfully arranged throughout the runway show. Burch drew inspiration both from the Sixties and the Seventies, unveiling the staples in a chronological order throughout the show.
She began with modernized version of the most recurring patterns of the Sixties, such as pretty cardigans and t-shirt dresses, just to slowly veer towards more festival-ready, hippie-inspired pieces, the geometries and multi-colored patterns of which make us already miss summer.
Oversized tunics, floor-length frocks, floral patterns and wrapped dresses thus soon dominate the scene, with suede waistcoats and cropped palazzo pants destined to become next summer’s ultimate must-haves.
When trying to add something new, Tory Burch also gave us a quick glimpse of what loungewear is according to her personal style, namely pajamas-turned-suits with a little scent of Seventies relaxed lines.
As usual, the Tory Burch spring/summer 2017 collection is strong on the accessory line too, with purses, clogs and cute ballerinas perfectly embodying the entire collection’s main mood.
