Tory Burch show her adventurous side with a nostalgic collection for Spring.

September 14, 2018

The Tory Burch Spring 2019 RTW collection features bold citrus hues that brighten and balance the neutrals, in charming bird-print pants and dresses, striped tunics and scarves and delicate embroidery on airy white cotton dresses.

“My parents, Buddy and Reva Robinson, were adventurers. Every summer, they boarded a steamer ship and spent six weeks sailing from Italy and Greece to Morocco and Spain. Their wanderlust has been a constant inspiration for me, and Spring/Summer 2019 brings that influence to the runway through unique details that recall their trips: silhouettes with a bohemian ease, balancing volume and tailoring; needlepoint and camera bags; well-worn hats and woven shoes,” said Designer Tory Burch.

Silhouettes are generously cut and underscored with a bohemian ease: voluminous caftans, oversized tops, roomy jackets, pajama-like pants, full skirts. From belted shirtdresses to nipped-waist safari looks, the season highlights the tailored style of a button-down.

The linear motifs come every which way, from nautical and multicolor styles to spliced patterns and broad shadow strips — all inspired by the relaxed summer shirts and a blazer worn by Tory’s father, Buddy.

Head toward neutral territory with crisp summer whites, subtle off-whites and every shade between beige and khaki.

For the runway show, the gardens of Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, were transformed into a slice of the Mediterranean for Tory’s Spring 2019 show — courtesy of landscape artist Miranda Brooks. The venue featured a far-flung vibe, complete with eight lemon trees, 20 cypress trees and 750 euphorbia plantings.
