For the Tory Burch Fall 2018 collection, the designer was inspired by the idea of “happy times,” a phrase that evokes beauty, strength and eternal optimism.
There’s a romantic mood throughout, with influences ranging from a field of carnations inspired by the drama of Pina Bausch’s Nelken to Lee Radziwill’s effortless style.
The main print for the season, a romantic wallpaper floral, is called Happy Times, a nod to Lee’s 2001 memoir by the same name. The print is a beautiful floral that features variegated carnations in a number of colorways, against a pale pink, ivory, ice blue and black for an interesting focal point for the collection. The pink one also subtly references Bausch’s pink carnations, which happened to be the inspiration behind our runway backdrop.
The new accessories of the season include the Lee Radziwill satchel, the brand’s take on the classic frame bag with special lock-and-key hardware, and the James, a saddle bag named after my youngest son, James Sawyer. The collection also includes a color-blocked shoe, the Penelope, that comes in slingback, d’Orsay and pump styles that are super-chic and comfortable.
