For the Tory Burch Fall 2020 RTW collection, the designer was inspired by Francesca DiMattio’s sculptures, daring to be different, with museum-worthy prints, unapologetically striking silhouettes, and soft riffs on power dressing.
Tory Burch reinterpreted the classic and nostalgic themes: menswear suiting cut with a softer shape, structural details played against fluid silhouettes, historic references reworked with modern ideas. All epitomized in the gray power suit, silk lace blouse and tall leather boots. The collection was refined and lighthearted, especially the prints which were designed by DiMattio.
Based off the shared appreciation of the history of Turkish, English and French porcelain, the colors and patterns were bold and more exaggerated. Equal emphasis was placed on bags and boots. The new Eleanor shoulder bag — structured and crafted from Italian leather.
For the Lee Radziwill collection, there were new interpretations of the ’70s saddlebag and an accordion shape. Every look is punctuated with a strong boot: mid-calf, riding, over-the-knee; pointed or tapered-square toe.
