No one hosts a garden party quite like Tory Burch. For her Spring 2014 collection, which was inspired by the French Riviera in the 1960s, the designer invited us in to a botanical wonderland of greens and whites with hints of coral and the occasional sparkle of a jeweled collar. Although we consistently love her bold prints, it was her textiles — dupioni silk, crochet overlays, lattice cutout leather, and pleated cotton — that had us wanting to reach out and touch. Even burlap looked lush, though the oversize beaded appliqués didn't hurt. And we'd be remiss not to take a moment to ogle the Tabitha Simmons-approved accessories: low heels and metallic slingbacks for shoes and handbags that included structured crossbodies, wicker-esque totes (filled with greenery for the catwalk), and another chic update on the fanny pack that had us very happy indeed we came to this folly.
