Tory Burch - Resort 2009
(NEW YORK) Tory Burch knows the jet-set better than anyone. For her Resort 2009 collection, Burch takes a beach-hopping journey to Polynesia, the Bahamas, the Hamptons...and back. "I was inspired by memories of my father on vacation in the Bahamas, going from the beach to the yacht with this laid-back attitude," said Burch. Embellished caftans, sun dresses, light cardigans and feminine skirts form the ideal escapist wardrobe. The Boho chic vibe is as elegant as it is relaxed, with mixed fabrics and patterns including prints like tile print, luau, circle and island ikat. The color palette captures the tropical atmosphere with Glass blue, tile blue, azure blue, poppy coral, watermelon, bright yellow, sand, coconut, ivory and white. Accessories are once again particularly strong with patent leather bowlers, cork sandals and oversized totes. With collections like these, we expect plenty more CFDA wins in Burch’s future.
