Refresh your summer wardrobe with the Tory Burch Pre-Fall 2016 collection, inspired by the quiet strength of poet, writer and artist Etel Adnan.
“Pre-Fall 2016 celebrates the quiet strength of poet, writer and artist Etel Adnan. We found inspiration in her beautiful sense of color and contrast as well as her travels and multicultural spirit. We played with pattern, proportion and fabric — embroidered sequins; color-blocked Chantilly lace — and kept the mood and silhouettes relaxed. Accessories follow suit, including the season’s camera bag, which nods to Adnan’s years as a newspaper editor,” said Tory Burch.
The collection features a pleated silk skirt with beaded waistband; papyrus- and palm-printed silk separates; easy pullover tunics in ribbed, marled wool; and color-blocked mock-neck tops. There were also lightweight and heavier “bohemian” tweeds, and a floor-length sequined column emblazoned with one of Adnan’s gently layered color-scapes, which promised to feel as easy on the body as one of the caftans so often associated with the ’70s.
