Tory Burch S/S 15: Cote d’Azur Fashion

It’s that time of year again when editors, photographers, and buyers swarm to the four fashion capitals of the world, seeking guidance for new and upcoming trends at Fashion Week. Every stitch is accounted for, every pleat is noted, and all colors of the rainbow fill the runways once more. Is it a flop art or an all-time hit? Do you prefer multi-colored fashions or the sporty looks? Est-ce que c’est a la mode ou tres passé? Only time will tell…

Were you lucky enough to merit an invitation this season???

This season’s collections have embraced the nouvelle vague trend of Cote d’Azur inspired prints and colors. British aristocrats, artists, European royalty, movie stars, and musicians have filled its beaches. Colorful, chic, and expensive … it was only a matter of time until the fashion crowd had invaded its borders.

Tory Burch tapped the South of France by using Francoise Gilot, Picasso’s artistic muse, as inspiration.

“She was a strong woman and a great artist,” Burch claims.

Gilot was the only woman to have left Picasso but his presence was no less of an effect in her life. The couple stayed in villa in Vallauris, surrounded by cypress trees, which served as inspiration for a toile de joy pattern on some of the skirts. Broderie anglaise and rogues, navy blues, rich orange colors all mirrored the ceramic patterns Picasso had created at the time.

Blouses and skirts were casually worn and fit with ease. Geometric patterns and colorful printed weave skirts gave the show a trendy, but stylish appeal. Cuts were clean and pristine.

How will the following collections add up? We will just have to wait and see.
