Marrakech meets Chelsea at Tory Burch

New York: Tory Burch infused Middle Eastern patterns and embellishments with London bohemia in her autumn/winter 15/16 collection. The striking color palette was based on earth tones of reds and blues pairing back to white and brown. Intricate tapestry like patterns mimicked the tapestries that were covering the venue’s walls and floors. The Moroccan patterns were contrasted by city lights print and bold diagonal stripes carrying forward the city element. Silhouettes were overall straight and relaxed with drop waists and loose bodies. Blouses paired with flowing, pleated skirts, while topcoats and vests layered over shirtdresses with some hemlines dipping asymmetrically. Knitwear was scattered throughout in jacquard patterns as well as allover sequin embellishments adding shine to the collection. Footwear included carved heel boots with ankle stirrups and mules worn with knee-high socks. Jewelry was subtle with low hanging pendant necklaces of arrowheads and tassels referencing Moroccan antiques. Overall the mood was a mixture of luxe Middle Eastern heritage with bohemian city styling. Jaclyn Jones
