A more romantic version of Tory Burch came through in her Resort 2014 collection, and the result gave real reason to look forward to packing for the next jet-set getaway. For the designer, it was all in the art of duality, of juxtaposition, and of harmonious (if not unexpected) pairings.
"How do you take a Moroccan hat and a painting by Édouard Manet and make the combination work? Resort 2014 celebrates the spirit of the mix, where inspirations play off each other in different textures and prints," said Burch. In as much, you'll find painterly florals paired with jeweled embellishments as easily as you would pleated chiffon with a novelty hat. Burch aimed for a feminine yet far-flung feel where accessories were concerned, introducing patterned low heels, beaded straw bags, and cutout cuffs.
