Morocco Meets Chelsea in Tory Burch’s Sophisticated 70s Inspired Show
We bring you the Tory Burch runway show for fall/winter 2015 from New York Fashion Week. Join us as we show you the highlights of the collection and have an exclusive interview with the designer.
Burch was inspired by the idea of a London, Chelsea meets Morocco theme based on the period in the late 60s and early 70s when the exotic city was a big influence on the west London scene, in particular the colorful rugs and textiles which she transferred into patterns and prints. She wanted to take the concept and make it modern and sexy, by carefully engineering the garments to keep them light and fluid as well as flattering to the figure. The models were styled with gently tousled natural hair and smokey eyes with a variety of ethnic inspired jewelry pieces and boots at ankle, calf and knee length.
There were some retro metal details and fringing on garments and bags, as well as some pieces embellished with refined strips of sequins and mirror tiles. The grown up Moroccan theme utilized richer and darker tones with knee length and longer skirts adding more sophistication and tunic style coats accentuating the influence.
Speaking about the busy modern woman, Burch talked about the importance of layering and the desire to be comfortable but remain chic in the process, exactly what her latest collection aims to offer.
