New York: Inspired by artist Francoise Gilot and the time she spent with Picasso in Vallauris, Tory Burch created a collection focused on fabric, pattern, and raw luxury. With elaborate textures, details included frayed edges, basket weaves, and heavy weight fabrics such as raffia tweed, canvas, and burlap. Interestingly, textured knit tops were paired with digital-printed copies in bottoms creating a smooth counterpart. Accessories continued the artisanal feel with paint dipped jewelry and beaded necklaces while footwear was all about woven leathers.–Jaclyn Jones
