Tory Burch Spring 2013
With an ever-growing empire of stores located in 12 countries (and counting), it's no wonder that Tory Burch has her eye on the global marketplace for Spring 2013. In fact, it was a recent trip to Morocco that helped to inform this season's mixed-up international bazaar look. Crochet raffia, intricate beading, folksy embroidery, batik patterns, tile prints and even tie-dye (handmade by women in Guinea) featured heavily, while models wore jeweled Moroccan slippers and carried bags fashioned to look like mini suitcases. There was a lot to look at it. br> And it totally worked. Why? Because Burch kept her shapes simple, and she never strayed far from those classic prepster silhouettes she does so well. "We were thinking about a stylish magpie who picks up special pieces while traveling around the world and always mixes them with classic sportswear," the show notes explained.
