The Tory Burch spring/summer 2014 collection was demonstrated on a watery blue runway at New York Fashion Week to reveal the inspiration source behind these charming botanical feminine looks, which is the “La Piscine” (translated as “The Swimming Pool”) film of 1969, or more precisely, Romy Schneider. And what we want to ask Tory Burch is yes, please, watch such movies more often and get inspired to create such mesmerizing fashion lines! French Riviera was imprinted all over the new Tory Burch collection, which was a harmonious blend of the old and the modern, sporty motives and utterly sweet and girly vibes.
The fresh spring breath is felt at once in the Tory Burch spring/summer 2014 collection. On a background of delicate lattice white the designer used charming garden-inspired green floral prints and beautifully embroidered flowers on the girlish mini dresses, fab blouses and crop tops. Other charming prints used included her backyard paintings of Queen Anne’s lace and hedge prints that added a high dose of grace to those casual feminine garments.
The garden mood of the Tory Burch spring/summer 2014 collection can be noticed not only in the prints and patterns chosen, but also in the soft color palette of the clothing pieces, ranging from greens and lattice whites to subtle washes of blue. Overall, there was nothing too bold and eye-catching and everything came carefully balanced and polished. The silhouettes were clean and modest with a nod to the sixties, the length of the dresses was mainly short without looking vulgar, the cuffs and collars of the garments were perfectly embellished with jewels for a high impact and there were also languid long designs for special occasions!
Although the Tory Burch clothing pieces were the focus of the entire line, no less amazing were the accessory choices, including the metallic loafers and bejeweled sandals, the big handle bags filled with fresh flowers, the tiny bags and the belted ones, as well as the arm bangles that accessorized some of the looks. Wholly, innocent girlishness and a fresh spring vibe were present throughout the Tory Burch spring/summer 2014 collection, making it one of the most practical and romantic lines for the upcoming bright season!
