Tory Sport by Tory Burch Spring 2016 Collection

When Tory Burch debuted her new stand-alone athleisure collection in September 2015, it was obvious it came to stay. Tory Sport by Tory Burch is now unveiling the new spring 2016 collection, which is filled with items that will let you go to the gym and then drop off your kids at school without changing your outfit, or even will let you go to the office in the morning and then attend your daily evening yoga lesson without making everyone wonder why on earth you decided to wear a workout outfit at the office. That’s, in fact, the magic of the athleisure trend: it lets you wear some cool pieces without your outfit’s shrieking ‘I just got out of the gym and had no time to even think about what to wear to work’.

Tory Burch is probably the one, who is taking the most out of the athleisure trend, creating full collections made of yoga, golf, running and tennis clothes that don’t even remotely look like basic workout pieces. Moreover, even though almost every brand in the world is now trying to get into the athleisure business, Tory Sport is the only one that’s trying to look at it from a unique and different point of view, with the sources of inspiration mainly coming from the designer’s love for culture, travel and art, along with her exquisite parents’ fashion styles (her mom Reva Robinson was a trendsetter actress who, before getting married, had led a Hollywood lifestyle and dated Marlon Brando).

That’s why the latest Tory Sport by Tory Burch spring 2016 collection features bright colors, bold graphics and exclusive detailing, as well as a cosmopolitan touch that will let anyone feel smitten by Burch’s designs. For the line-up the color palette used is primarily blue, white, orange and yellow, and often mixes such colors creating some intense contrasts and colorblocking motifs that make the collection look more like a ready-to-wear collection rather than a mere activewear line-up. Furthermore, to make each one of her pieces even cozier, Burch fused her ready-to-wear designs with some innovative fabrics, which help make most of the zip-front jackets, as well as other pieces, 100% water-proof and ultra-lightweight.

Functionality meets fashion with Tory Sport’s great variety of leggings too, carrying on with the stylish mission thanks to some clear-cut short shorts and fancy t-shirts. Tracksuits, bikinis and a white bodysuit with two rackets printed on the bottom prove sports can be ironic too. Rainbow backpacks and pochettes take a step closer to targeting a younger audience, trying to add a more cheerful attitude to the line-up.

Varsity jackets, preppy looking sweaters, tennis skirts and stripe dresses are the collection’s key pieces, and give a huge contribution to the distinctive Seventies and Eighties looks. For this spring 2016 collection, Tory Sport also features a golf line that, according to Burch herself, “can be tough” to be brought into life. Polos, miniskirt and windbreakers have thus been designed to satisfy any female golfer’s tastes, while also trying to lessen the distance between the predominantly male and the new, emerging, female audience.

To be fully honest, the entire Tory Sport by Tory Burch spring 2016 line-up may be regarded as a tribute to sports, and each one of the pieces firmly states that a girl can do anything she wants to. Tory Sport encourages us to take care of ourselves while reminding us that, even though the day is only 24-hour long and time is precious, we can lead a healthy lifestyle while wearing a pair of brand new fancy leggings.
