Tory Burch's latest collection inspired by coastal living
Tory Burch’s new spring collection reflects "quintessential" American style.
The fashion designer’s latest line is certainly perfect for the warmer seasons, featuring ensembles like a floral bralette and matching high-waisted trousers as well as a white top printed with navy ships. Tory mixed the style of two very different locations for this offering and worked hard to bind them together.
“This collection is interesting because I have in the past been so inspired by places all over the world and this time I have brought it right back home,” she told Vogue.com. “There was East coast meets West coast and a sort of quintessential American style. Those coasts are very disparate and different, so bringing it together and making a focused collection was a challenge.”
One reason Tory’s label has become so popular is because it feels and looks as though she’d wear it herself, with Vogue describing her designs as a “natural and genuine extension of her own style”. She doesn’t understand how people think that though, admitting personal style is hit and miss, taking years to perfect.
Tory, 50, only began her fashion career in 2004 with her first shop, but it wasn’t long before famous names like Oprah Winfrey reached out to her for pieces. For those looking to follow in her footsteps, Tory has shared her words of wisdom.
“The sky is the limit but you have to be prepared to work really hard and know that nothing comes easily! It is about hard work, managing things and tenacity,” she smiled.
She’s a big advocate of supporting female entrepreneurs, and does so through her Tory Burch Foundation, which empowers aspiring businesswomen with education and digital and capital resources. Tory finds the women involved “insanely inspiring,” though feels more work needs to be done in women in the business world.
